Hawaii Car Accidents

Every day in the United States, more than 17,000 car accidents are reported. These collisions injure more than 7,500 individuals and end the lives of over 100 people each day. Per year, the United States sees over 6 million vehicle accidents that injure over 3 million people and take the lives of approximately 40,000. Each year, in Hawaii, a reported 10,000+ auto collisions occur. This is equal to about 30 per day. Car crashes have become a leading cause of death in America due to the actions of negligent drivers. In the past ten years, driver distraction has become the most common type of driver negligence seen in the US, causing over 400,000 traffic collisions per year. 

Vehicle problems, dangerous road conditions, and driver negligence/error are the most common causes of car crashes in the United States. However, driver negligence is the most common cause, responsible for over 90% of all reported auto collisions throughout the entire country. Distracted driving is the most commonly seen type of driver negligence, causing over 400,000 vehicle accidents per year.

Another common type of driver error/negligence is speeding, which causes more than 11,00 fatalities per year in the US.  This is equal to about 30% of the national fatality rate related to car crashes. 

Being seriously hurt in a car crash can be a very difficult experience. Depending on how severe your injuries are, you may be stuck in the hospital for weeks or longer, missing time at work and with your loved ones. This can be depressing, stressful, and exhausting. Luckily, if your accident was caused by driver negligence, you may qualify for financial compensation for the damages related to your crash. Driver negligence is illegal in the United States, and those who suffer negative consequences because of it are usually eligible for financial compensation for things like medical bills, vehicle repairs, wage loss, pain, suffering, and more. Basically, any negative consequences that resulted from your accident, if it was not your fault, may be compensated when you file a personal injury claim.
