Drunk driving: Why should you pay for someone else's negligence?

Hawaii is no different from other states when it comes to highway dangers. Anything from inclement road conditions to someone driving at excessive speeds can place you at risk for injury if a collision occurs. Drunk drivers often plague the roadways in this state, as well, often causing serious injury to those unfortunate enough to share the road with them.

Pedestrian accidents are occurring at an alarming rate

Although there are more drivers than ever before in Hawaii, most people still travel by foot. Unfortunately, Hawaii has recently been marred by numerous deadly pedestrian accidents. The high number of vehicles sharing roadways could be a reason for the increased numbers of crashes involving pedestrians. Unfortunately, any accident involving a pedestrian is more likely to be fatal.

Car accidents remain a leading cause of death and injury

Motorists in Hawaii are always at risk when traveling on crowded roadways across the state. To mitigate some of this risk, drivers should always stay alert, pay attention to surroundings and practice defensive driving habits. However, it is likely that all drivers will be involved an accident at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, car accidents are one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States.

How do I prove who was responsible for my slip-and-fall accident?

Few people in Hawaii take fall injuries as seriously as they should, but you know just how devastating they can be. You might have suffered sprains, broken bones or even a head injury because of your recent accident. Like many victims, you may need help navigating the aftermath of your slip-and-fall accident.

Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents

Distracted driving is one of the main causes of crashes in Hawaii and across the United States. Drivers these days face an abundance of distractions like cellphones and other gadgets that can take focus off of the road. According to statistics, about 25 percent of all fatal car accidents are the result of distracted driving. Alarming statistics such as this explain why police forces around the country are cracking down on distracted drivers.

New law aims to reduce motorcycle accidents

Motorcycles are very popular in Hawaii, and rightfully so. Not only are motorcycles cost-efficient and easier to maintain, they are also a fun way to explore the beautiful landscapes that the state of Hawaii is so famous for. However, traveling by motorcycle is not without added risk, especially now that roadways are often very crowded. Motorcycle accidents have been increasing every year. In an effort to increase safety, a new law was recently passed that may prove beneficial to motorcyclists.

For business and property owners, the best ways to prevent accidents from happening involve maintaining properties and removing potential hazards. Things such as poor lighting, unattended items left in aisles and slick floors are accidents waiting to happen that could cause injury to customers. According to premises liability laws in Hawaii, property and business owners may be held liable when hazardous conditions cause injuries to visitors.

Car accidents: Not a question of if, but when

Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. The biggest question regarding accidents is not if they will happen, but when. Sure, precautions can be taken to reduce the likelihood of accidents occurring, but most accidents are completely unpredictable and thus unavoidable. When it comes to car accidents, the consequences can be life-altering and, in some cases, life-ending. Car accidents in Hawaii are stressful events, but the stress can substantially magnified when the at-fault drivers flees the scene.
