Car Accidents in Hawaii
Car accidents can be incredibly devastating. Unfortunately, they are the cause of thousands of injuries across Hawaii each year. Many people are left with injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Common injuries reported in car crashes include:
- Whiplash: Sudden stops or impacts can cause neck and spine injuries.
- Cuts and Bruises: Impact on the vehicle’s interior or objects in the car can cause various cuts and bruises.
- Psychological Injuries: Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and emotional distress can affect individuals involved in accidents.
These and other injuries continue to have an overwhelming impact on the lives of car crash victims. Unfortunately, the vast majority of accidents reported statewide are preventable. Acts of negligence continue to contribute to many of these collisions. Leading factors include:
- Distracted Driving: This includes activities such as texting, talking on the phone, or eating while driving.
- Speeding: Exceeding the speed limit or driving too fast for road conditions is a common cause of accidents.
- Inexperienced Drivers: Drivers unfamiliar with local roads or inexperienced in handling diverse weather conditions may contribute to accidents.
When drivers do not operate their vehicles in a manner that is safe for others around, it can have devastating consequences.
