Hawaii Car Crashes

In Hawaii, there are thousands of accidents that result in injuries every year. People frequently experience life-altering injuries in crashes as a result of careless drivers. Although we are aware that no two incidents are the same, there are many similarities in the harm that victims endure. Some of the leading injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones

Regrettably, thousands of innocent people are forced to deal with overwhelming consequences due to drivers who are negligent. In Hawaii, the leading factors in auto collisions include:

  • Distracted driving: Accidents are more likely to be caused by drivers who are preoccupied with their cell phones, food, or other passengers.
  • Speeding: Speeding contributes significantly to accidents, particularly on highways and other busy roads.
  • Alcohol: Drunk driving is a major issue and one of the main factors contributing to accidents in Hawaii.
  • Weather: Unfavorable conditions, such as rain or fog, can make it challenging to see other vehicles on the road, which can result in collisions.
  • Road conditions: If drivers are not careful, potholes, cracks, and other flaws in the road might result in accidents.
