A review of common car accident injuries

Not long ago, this Honolulu-based personal injury legal blog offered an article on how motor vehicle accident victims could suffer serious whiplash injuries. This post will expand on that topic, introducing some of the other common forms of injuries that individuals may suffer if they are involved in car crashes and collisions. Although readers are encouraged to review this information, they are reminded that the contents provided do not offer any legal or medical advice.

Always see a doctor following a car accident

Hawaiian roadways are not exempt from terrible traffic fatalities. Between Jan. 1, 2016, to Nov. 13 of the same year, 100 people lost their lives throughout Hawaii. While most people survive traffic collisions, there are still a number of injuries people can develop as a result of a crash.

Representation for fatal vacation accidents

People who visit the Hawaiian Islands can also face threats to their health and safety if the vendors and businesses they utilize for their adventure experiences fail to protect them from preventable harm. When exciting experiences become life-threatening emergencies, victims may find themselves spending their time in the hospital with debilitating injuries, or even worse, coping with the losses of loved ones.

Avoid social media after a motor vehicle accident

Hawaiian law enforcement has gone to great lengths to educate residents of public safety issues with the state's roadways. The state's Department of Transportation invested in numerous campaigns over the years to inform residents of such dangers as driving while under the influence and driving without wearing a seat belt. 

Do I have legal recourse if my doctor misdiagnosis my illness?

Most people trust that when they go to their doctors, they will receive a careful review of their symptoms and overall health from their medical professionals. They may expect to be asked questions about how they feel or may expect to submit to testing so their doctors can gain more information about their conditions. When a Honolulu resident leaves their doctor's office, they generally should feel confident that their medical professional has correctly identified the source of their ailment and has provided him or her with a treatment that will improve their health.

Understanding injuries incurred at hotels and resorts

Hawaii is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The pleasant climate and array of exciting outdoor adventures that are available for visitors to experience make it one of the most sought after destinations for travelers. When travelers arrive on the islands, they are often taken to magnificent resorts and hotels that offer them comfortable accommodations for the duration of their visits.

Recognizing traumatic brain injuries due to auto accidents

Auto accidents can lead to a number of different injuries, including trauma to the brain. Such injuries can lead to life-altering or even life-threatening circumstances. Thankfully, it is possible to seek reparations for injuries when the responsible party was negligent.

Evening accident claims the life of a pedestrian

Driving at night presents different challenges for drivers than those traveling during the day. The reduced visibility that can happen when the sun sets can make seeing the road ahead of a driver significantly more complex. It is for this and other reasons that Hawaiian drivers should take extra precautions when they must operate their automobiles in the evening.
