When a truck driver is negligent behind the wheel, the result is often devastating. Accidents in Hawaii caused by negligent truck operators may cause pain and suffering to innocent victims. In worst cases, families may suffer the untimely death of a loved one because a trucker was distracted or acted carelessly on the road.
Recovering from serious truck accident injuries is often a lengthy and difficult process. Medical care can be very expensive, and many injured victims are not prepared to meet such costs. In such situations, it may help to know that personal injury claims can be filed against drivers deemed culpable to seek compensation for damages.
Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks can help you assess your particular situation to determine how best to approach an injury claim in court. The laws and regulations governing truck accident situations often differ from those related to other vehicles. This is due to the fact that commercial trucks have weight limitations. Other regulations involve driving time and the types of loads being hauled.
In addition to initial pain and suffering endured as a truck accident victim, the quality of a person’s life can be seriously compromised due to disabilities caused by accident injuries. If you or your loved one have suffered in a Hawaii collision, you may contact our office for more information on how to file a personal injury claim. We are committed to helping you obtain a successful outcome by seeking a monetary judgment against the party or parties believed responsible for your suffering.
