If you believe that another driver caused the auto accident that led to your injuries, you can file a personal injury claim against that individual. This process can take many steps, and understanding the different stages involved with the proceedings may allow you to feel more at ease as your case moves forward.
Truth be told, some of Honolulu's roads lend themselves to speeding. These roads also see an inordinate number of car accidents as a result. Many people do not even realize that their speed has significantly increased until they look down at the speedometer. For others, the recognition that their speed has reached a dangerous level only becomes evident after a crash.
Even more difficult than predicting when an accident will occur is predicting who will survive a crash, who will suffer serious injuries and who will walk away unscathed. To make matters worse, some people who initially survive car accidents suffer serious injuries and later lose their lives. For instance, a Hawaii woman who suffered severe injuries in a recent crash ultimately died of her injuries just days later.
I'm fighting for a personal injury client who was a moped rider injured in an accident where a car turned left in front of her. She was going straight ahead at a constant rate of speed, as confirmed by eye witnesses. Traffic was heavy. There were three lanes of traffic that the Defendant driver wanted to turn across. All of the lanes had cars, some of which were stopped because of congestion. The Defendant claims he looked down the three lanes of traffic, saw that drivers in two of the lanes were stopped, waiving him through. He also claims that he saw no cars in the third lane, before he started to turn.
A car accident can change a life in a moment, leaving victims and loved ones trying to pick up the pieces and find a way to recover. If you were hurt in a car accident in Hawaii, you know first-hand the physical, emotional and financial damage that can result from an auto collision.
