Without the steel-cage protection of a car, motorcycle riders can be more vulnerable to injuries in accidents or crashes.
The drivers of motorcycles are also less visible to other drivers. Those facts, however, do not excuse the negligence of a driver who is responsible for causing the accident or crash.
Motorcycle accidents in Hawaii can lead to broken bones, head injuries, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, paralysis or even death.
The victim and their family may be forced to pursue a personal injury suit in order to pay for staggering medical bills, pain and suffering and lost wages.
