Waipahu, HI - FSP Responds to Two-Vehicle Injury Collision on I-H1 at Waipahu

Distracted driving, reckless driving, and other irresponsible or unlawful behaviors behind the wheel are not as strongly associated with fatal collisions in Hawaii, although almost every car accident in the state stems from one of these four elements.  

Hawaii drivers have the highest number of auto accidents nationwide, per capita, due to drivers who are under the influence. In Hawaii, a personal injury attorney can help organize information from any current criminal proceedings to ensure that full financial compensation is awarded to those who deserve it.

A report cited by a local news outlet puts drivers from Hawaii in the top 10% when it comes to collisions resulting from vehicles being operated at unsafe speeds. 

Both of these factors allow injured victims to benefit from the seasoned advice of a Hawaii personal injury lawyer. Your attorney will be able to obtain police records that will support your personal injury claim and increase your chances of receiving full economic recovery.
