Hawaii Truck Accident Lawyer

Honolulu Truck Accidents

The state of California is one of only ten states in the nation that have modified their laws in order to reduce the likelihood of truck accidents. In our state, these modifications have included lower speed limits for large trucks and other similar commercial vehicles. This action was taken due to the staggeringly large number of truck accidents that take place on an annual basis. Approximately 450,000 accidents involving trucks occur every year, resulting in numerous injuries and over 5,000 deaths. Of these deaths, only 15% are truck drivers. 72% are other innocent motorists, or their passengers. And 13% are motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.

At Bostwick & Peterson LLP, we have seen first-hand how devastating truck accidents can be for the innocent people involved. The injuries sustained are frequently very severe, as is the damage to vehicles and other property. We represent the victims of truck accidents with the goal of obtaining full compensation for all of their accident expenses, including the costs of all medical care, ongoing physical therapy, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A Hawaii personal injury lawyer at our firm is prepared to assist you in your case, and will fight aggressively for the favorable resolution you deserve after being victimized by another's negligence.

Causes of Truck Accidents

Nearly one-fifth of all truck accidents are caused by truck driver negligence of some kind. This negligence may include:

  • Driving while drunk or under the influence of drugs
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Driving with a trailer that has been overloaded
  • Driving with cargo that has not been adequately secured

A truck driver who causes an accident due to their careless or reckless behavior may be held financially liable for the injuries and damages sustained by other motorists. If it can be shown that the trucking company or truck manufacturer also displayed negligence, they may be held accountable as well.

Contact a Hawaii truck accident attorney if you are determined to recover damages after being injured in a truck accident.
