Auto accidents already claimed 4 Honolulu lives this January

Honolulu police reported that a crash on the island of Oahu on Jan. 9 was the fourth traffic fatality in 2018, compared to only one in the first nine days of 2017.

According to authorities, the number of arrests for drunk driving in Hawaii so far this year exceeds 1,000.

Bicycle riders in Hawaii are incredibly vulnerable. This is often underscored by auto accidents that cause severe or fatal injuries to cyclists. So far this year, 32 people have lost their lives in traffic-related accidents on the island. This includes a fatal crash that happened in Hilo on a recent Wednesday.

Medical evaluations essential for claims after auto accidents

Sometimes, crash victims in Hawaii do not realize the importance of a medical evaluation even if injuries seem insignificant. Some common injuries suffered in auto accidents worsen over the following days or weeks, if not identified and treated promptly. One such injury is neck trauma caused by whiplash. The sudden shaking of the head upon crash impact can cause sprains and strains that need therapy, and if disks are herniated, surgery may even be needed.

Sadly, that is not true for the rest of the year.

Auto accidents often prompt lengthy investigations

When a motorist is involved in a motor vehicle collision in Hawaii, there may be more questions than answers about who or what may have caused a particular incident to occur. This is why  many auto accidents often result in extensive police investigations. In fact, one such situation took place Waianae that still has traffic investigators searching for answers.

Auto accidents: Ambulance shortage might have caused fatality

A 61-year-old cyclist died in Hawaii on a recent Thursday afternoon, and some suggest that he might have survived if not for a shortage of ambulance services. Auto accidents that involve collisions with bicycles often turn out to be tragic because cyclists have no protection. The prompt attention of paramedics is usually the only chance of saving the life of a victim.

Fatalities in Maui auto accidents almost as many as last year
