Hawaii Car Crashes

Auto accidents in Hawaii happen frequently. Every year, tens of thousands of crashes are reported that injure thousands of people and take the lives of hundreds. These crashes happen for a plethora of different reasons, ranging from car problems to bad weather to driver negligence. Negligent driving is the main cause of the majority of car accidents in the United States. On average, over 90% of the car crashes reported in the US are caused by the actions of negligent drivers. 

Distraction, intoxication, fatigue, and speeding cause millions of vehicle crashes in the United States every single year. Driver distraction alone is responsible for over 400,000 auto accidents yearly. Speeding takes over 11,000 lives annually, while intoxication takes about 12,000 lives per year. Additionally, driver fatigue is behind about 100,000 yearly auto collisions in the United States. Throughout the past decade, negligent driving has become one of the top ten reasons Americans end up with serious or fatal injuries. 

In the event that you or someone you love sustained injuries in a negligently caused accident, you may be eligible to collect financial compensation. Compensation can help you cover some or all of the expenses that stem from your accident. You may be able to get compensation for vehicle repairs, wage loss, medical bills, and more.
