Hawaii Car Crashes

Every year, tens of thousands of auto collisions are reported throughout the state of Hawaii. More than ten thousand individuals suffer injuries in these crashes, and some even end up losing their lives.  Auto collisions are one of the most common reasons people suffer serious injuries or lose their lives in the United States, especially those aged 15-20. Each year, approximately 3 million individuals are seriously hurt in car crashes in the US. Sadly, over 40,000 people are killed per year in American car crashes.  

Injuries that may be caused by  serious car crashes include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries

Currently, the main reason car crashes happen in the United States and throughout the state of Hawaii is driver negligence. Negligent drivers account for over 90% of reported auto crashes. Accidents caused by driver negligence are often much more catastrophic than those that occur for other reasons.  

The consequences that arise when you or someone you love is seriously hurt in an accident are usually difficult to overcome. Not only do those victimized in auto collisions suffer physically and emotionally, but they also face complex financial issues in the aftermath of their crashes. A lawyer can help you recover physically, emotionally, and financially after your crash. Additionally, an attorney can help hold the negligent party who caused your accident accountable for their actions.

The insurance company wants you to settle for as little compensation as possible.
