Distracted Driving: Texting and Cell Phone Accidents in Hawaii

Hawaii Distracted Driving Attorney:

Foster Law Offices represents Hawaii residents, visitors and tourists in auto accident claims caused by drivers who fail to pay attention to the road due to a distraction such as cell phone use. Unfortunately, these type of auto accident claims are becoming more and more prevalent as the use of mobile devices increases in our society. 

Cell Phone Use Illegal While Driving In Hawaii:

The State of Hawaii has banned cell phone use while driving. Hawaii has implemented severe penalties for drivers who use cell phones in their vehicles. Despite Hawaii's strict anti-cell phone laws, drivers still use their cell phones while driving and put countless lives at risk. This decision can be especially treacherous on our two-lane and one-way roadways.

Distracted Driving Illegal In Hawaii:

Hawaii law prohibits not only cell phone use while driving but also a driver who engages in other activities that distract the driver. Examples of distracted driving in Hawaii can include:

  • Admiring sunset
  • Whale watching 
  • Talking with passengers
  • Applying make-up
  • Eating and drinking

Accidents caused by distracted drivers can result in not only life-threatening injuries but also life-altering financial consequences to the victim. Such financial consequences include medical expenses, wage loss, vehicle damage as well as debilitating pain and suffering. 

Turn Anger Into $$$:

However, financial recovery is merely one side of this type of personal injury case. The other side involves the anger and negative emotions experienced by those injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver. While nothing can be done to change the driver's decision to drive distracted, an injured victim's recourse comes in the form of compensation and we are here to facilitate such a recovery.
