Hawaii Auto Accidents
Each year, tens of thousands of auto collisions occur in the Aloha State. Thousands of people sustain injuries in these collisions and, sadly, people even lose their lives. Auto collisions are some of the most prevalent reasons people end up losing their lives in the United States, particularly people aged 15-20. Yearly, approximately 3 million people suffer serious injuries in car wrecks across the nation. Sadly, over 30,000 people are killed yearly in traffic collisions throughout the United States.
Some common reasons car accidents happen in the US include:
- Inclement weather
- Vehicle malfunctions
- Driver negligence
Right now, more car accidents happen due to the actions of negligent drivers than the number of crashes caused by bad weather and car problems combined. Driver negligence causes 9 out of 10 auto collisions throughout the country. This is alarming, especially when we consider the number of daily car crashes: about 17,000. This means that tens of thousands of car crashes happen each day that are caused by negligent driving. Negligent driving causes some of the most devastating accidents on the road.
It can be extremely difficult to attempt to recover from a severe car crash injury. Not only do accident victims go through excruciating physical pain, but they may also find themselves going through difficult emotional turmoil and stressful financial situations. When you work with a lawyer, you will have the option to collect financial compensation for your damages. An attorney can also work on holding the negligent party accountable for their actions so you can see justice.
Another benefit of working with an attorney in the aftermath of your accident is they can usually negotiate a full and fair settlement from the insurance company for you. Dealing with insurance companies on your own can prove to be detrimental to your finances. They may attempt to get you to settle for much less compensation than you deserve or try to deny your claim altogether. A lawyer won’t let this happen. You will be able to get the money you need to pay for medical care, car repair expenses, wage loss, and more.
At the law office of Leavitt, Yamane, & Soldner, we can help you recover after your car accident. It is smart to talk to an attorney as soon as you can after your crash. This is because most states have a certain amount of time in which you are able to file a personal injury claim after your accident. This is called the statute of limitations. In Hawaii, the statute of limitations is two years for car accident claims. This means that, from the date of your crash, you have two years in which to file a claim for compensation. If you attempt to file a claim after two years, you will be unable to collect compensation.
Our firm does not charge any out-of-pocket fees, and we only get paid if you do. If you are unable to collect compensation, you owe us nothing. Our main goal is to help you financially following your injury incident.
