Liability for Dangerous Conditions on Property

A California lab is now investigating an explosion at the University of Hawaii at Manoa that led to serious personal injuries. According to reports, the explosion occurred following a routine procedure. A postdoc candidate was transferring hydrogen, oxygen and carbon dioxide into a small cylinder when the accident occurred. The woman lost her arm as the result of the explosion. The California lab investigating the accident was established following a fatal accident at a research center at UCLA.

Whenever serious personal injuries occur, it is important to conduct a thorough investigation into all of the factors that may have led to the accident. For example, were all safety protocols followed? Did any unreasonable safety hazards exist? Was this a foreseeable accident that could have been prevented?

Where an owner of property allows a dangerous condition to exist on their premises they may be held responsible in a "premises liability" lawsuit and be required to pay damages. Who the owner is, i.e. a municipality, a college, an employer or private entity, plays an important role in determining the type of lawsuit and damages that may be available.

For more information, or if you have sustained serious personal injuries in any type of accident, please contact the experienced Hawaii personal injury lawyers at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP for an immediate consultation.
