Tantalus, HI - Teen Seriously Injured When Car Plunges From Cliff on Round Top Dr

Two of the most common causes of vehicle crashes in Hawaii are:

Speeding: Sadly, this thought that it is okay to circumvent the law is exactly what places Hawaii residents in even more danger due to vehicles driving too fast. A second publication referenced by a local news source states that motorists from the state of Hawaii are in the top 10th percentile in terms of collisions resulting from motor vehicles being driven well above the posted speed limit.  

Drunk Driving: As reported by a media outlet out of Honolulu, motorists in Hawaii have the highest total of auto collisions per capita in the United States. Most of these incidents are the result of motorists who have had too much to drink. In Hawaii, a car crash attorney can effectively coordinate information and keep you up to date on any details relating to any ongoing criminal proceedings in order to ensure that full financial compensation is given to those who need it.
