Hawaii Personal Injury Lawyer

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I have sustained injury in an accident?

Seek help from a competent medical professional as soon as possible. In addition to the obvious injuries you have sustained, they may also be able to determine if you have sustained any internal injuries which do not have obvious outward manifestations. In doing this, you will also be able to establish if you have grounds to file a personal injury claim.

Why do I need an attorney in my personal injury case?

An attorney may be able to provide you with a better chance of recovering compensation than if you were to file a claim on your own. Insurance companies can be difficult to deal with, and rarely pay out adequate injury settlements if they avoid it. Similarly, personal injury litigation can be complex, and without thorough knowledge of the court system, it may be difficult to secure the money award you deserve. A Hawaii personal injury attorney from Bostwick & Peterson LLP possesses substantial experience in obtaining compensation for injury victims, and wi ll know how best to proceed in your particular case.

What manner of compensation will I be entitled to in my case?

That depends on the circumstances of your accident, but in general, a successful claim will result in compensation for your:

  • Pain and suffering (be it physical, mental, or emotional)
  • Medical expenses (present and future)
  • Lost income or profits (present and future)
  • Property damage

How long will it take for my case to be resolved?

This depends on many factors, including the injuries you have sustained, the severity of those injuries, and the number of other people involved in the accident. An insurance company may be willing to pay you a fair settlement in a matter of days, weeks, or months. If a fair settlement from the insurance company is not forthcoming, or if legal action in a court is necessary, it may take years for you to reach a resolution in your case. Hiring an attorney will serve to increase the likelihood of a case that is resolved in a relatively swift and efficient manner.
