Hawaii Car Wrecks
The United States sees over 6 million car crashes per year. Auto wrecks are listed as one of the most common reasons severe injuries and fatalities take place. More than 3 million people are hurt in these accidents per year. Each day, in the state of Hawaii, approximately 30 serious auto crashes happen each day, and approximately 10,000 happen per year.
Alarmingly, most of these crashes are the result of negligent driving. Thousands of drivers choose to allow themselves to become distracted, fatigued, intoxicated, or drive at unsafe speeds, putting themselves and everyone around them at serious risk for injuries or death. Every year in the US, about 30% of reported auto accidents are the result of intoxicated driving. Additionally, 400,000 vehicle crashes happen per year due to driver distraction. Overall, over 90% of reported car wrecks happen due to the actions of negligent drivers.
When you’re seriously hurt in an auto crash, you may be suffering in many different ways. You could be stuck in the hospital with severe injuries while you worry about how you’re going to make ends meet financially. You may be missing work and much-needed pay while the bills pile up, which can be very stressful and difficult to deal with.
