Motorcycle accidents and are more debilitating and cause greater trauma. Oftentimes, victims incur some of the most serious injuries, including catastrophic brain injuries and spinal injuries.

- Pedestrian Accident

Determining fault in a pedestrian accident that causes an injury is a complicated process that hinges primarily on proving the negligence and liability of each party. Drivers, pedestrians, and property owners each have a responsibility to protect the personal safety by regarding crosswalks, traffic controls, oncoming traffic, and premises safety.

- Injuries to Tourists

Each year, thousands of tourists are drawn to Hawaii’s famous beauty and charm.
