Honolulu Drunk Driver Accident Lawyer | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Honolulu Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Hawaii is tied with Louisiana as being the 6th most dangerous state for pedestrians. This is certainly not a record to be proud of, and one we would like to lose. Each year in Hawaii, pedestrians suffer severe and sometimes fatal injuries. Pedestrian injuries and fatalities remain high. In 2019, 6,205 pedestrians were killed, and an estimated 76,000 pedestrians were injured nationwide according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Most of these accidents are caused by drivers who are distracted, driving aggressively, impaired by alcohol or drugs, or are otherwise negligent.

Pedestrian Accidents can be caused by:

  • Distracted driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Failure to follow traffic signs or signals
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Failure to signal
  • Poor weather or traffic conditions
  • Driving while impaired
  • Driving while drowsy or fatigued

Hawaii is especially dangerous for people 65 and over. The AARP ranks Hawaii as the most dangerous state in the nation for pedestrians 65 and older. No matter the age, pedestrians are at high risk of injury in Hawaii. In some cases, both the pedestrian and the driver may be at fault. In these cases, the pedestrian may still be entitled to compensation, but compensation could be reduced depending on how much responsibility was on the pedestrian for the accident.

Not all pedestrian accidents result in just injuries. Some pedestrian injuries can be fatal. Even at low speeds, the weight and mass of a vehicle colliding with a pedestrian can leave them with injuries that are debilitating and even life-threatening.

Pedestrian injuries can include:

  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Chest and abdominal injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Torn tendons and ligaments
  • Disc herniation

5 stars just isnt enough for Andrew Marcantel, Marc Victor, and the entire staff here.When my... boyfriend was wrongly accused of a totally vile crime, neither of us had any experience navigating the "just-us" system.If you've faced potentially life-altering accusations, and you feel like the system is set up to empower police, prosecutors, judges, and pretty much everyone except you, then you're right! If you want to level the playing feild, Attorneys for Freedom will accomplish that.Some others have commented about the price. Good representation does cost money, unfortunately. What is a persons future worth?Compared to the competition, which is also expensive, the value you will get at this law firm is just unbelievable. Andrew especially is so great at walking you through possible scenerios, guiding you through important decisions, and has the experience to truly get good results. Extremely knowledgeable and creative not just "aggressive". He is also an excellent communicator, both in the office and in the court.Speaking of communication, the paralegal team at even some more expensive law firms will leave you wondering what it is they are paid to do. This is not the case at Attorneys for Freedom. Ashley Crispino and Kaylie Kline did an amazing job at both keeping us in the loop and being available when needed.Reading "Case Dismissed" after what felt like an eternity of fighting was the best outcome we could have ever asked for.I told my Aunt who was very worried about us at the height of all the absurdity that I felt like having Andy on our side was better than prayer. And I was right.read more

This is my first time ever needing an attorney and my attorney was Kate and she did an amazing job... with my case! Kate took time to go through all of the evidence so she understood everything before going to court. Kate assistant Madalyn was also super helpful and very sweet! Anytime I called she was very understanding and helped me walk through the process when I did not understand something and always had an upbeat positive attitude! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely being going back to Kate!read more
