Car Accidents in Hawaii

Car accidents can result in profound devastation, contributing to thousands of injuries annually across Hawaii. Many individuals grapple with injuries demanding extensive medical intervention. Common injuries stemming from car crashes encompass:

  • Whiplash: The abrupt stops or impacts during accidents can lead to neck and spine injuries.
  • Cuts and Bruises: Collisions with the vehicle’s interior or objects within can cause a range of cuts and bruises.
  • Psychological Injuries: Individuals involved in accidents may experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and emotional distress.

These injuries, and countless others, significantly impact the lives of car crash victims. Unfortunately, the majority of reported accidents statewide are preventable, with acts of negligence playing a substantial role. Key contributing factors include:

  • Distracted Driving: when drivers are not paying attention on the phone due to texting, talking on the phone, or eating while driving, it can have devastating consequences.
  • Speeding: Going beyond the speed limit or driving too fast for road conditions remains a common cause of accidents.
  • Inexperienced Drivers: Lack of familiarity with local roads or inexperience in handling diverse weather conditions contributes to accidents.

When drivers fail to operate their vehicles safely, the consequences can be devastating. If you’ve suffered harm due to an automobile collision, legal action may be an option.
