Hawaii Car Accidents
Car crashes that cause injuries and fatalities happen in the state of Hawaii for a long list of reasons. Regrettably, most of them are caused by the actions of negligent drivers. Speeding and driver intoxication are two widespread forms of driver negligence seen in the Aloha State. Crashes that happen when people are traveling at unsafe speeds usually result in more severe injuries and a higher number of fatalities than other types of collisions. Driver negligence is the main contributing factor in car crashes in Hawaii and throughout the United States.
Approximately ¼ of fatalities related to American traffic accidents were caused by driver intoxication in 2020. About 75% of the deceased victims were drinking and driving when they lost their lives. When people choose to drink/do drugs and drive, their ability to correctly navigate the road can be obliterated, causing severely dangerous situations to arise. Accidents caused by drivers who are intoxicated are usually more devastating than any other type of crash.
If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident caused by speeding, intoxication, or another form of driver negligence, you may be eligible to collect financial compensation. Losses and damages caused by your crash, including the costs related to medical bills, lost earnings, medical care costs, and more may be able to be covered by financial compensation when you file a personal injury claim with a lawyer.
