Honolulu Personal Injury Attorney

Personal injury claims are filed by those who have been injured as a result of the negligence of another. This type of claim is a legal action that allows an injured person an opportunity to seek compensation for any medical costs, lost wages, rehabilitation, and future predicted losses or other damages that they might have sustained in their accident. A person can file a claim for injuries that are physical, mental, or emotional in nature, in a variety of accident scenarios.

You can also read through our site to see just some of the different areas of personal injury that we can help with; these include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Asbestos - Used in different building materials, among other industrial uses, asbestos have long since been linked to the cause of a serious illnesses – such as mesothelioma and asbestosis. If you were exposed to asbestos and are just becoming aware of the consequences, don't hesitate to get us involved.
  • Aviation Accidents - Accidents involving the crashes of airplanes and helicopters – regardless of the size of the craft – can be the cause of debilitating injuries and often wrongful death. If this accident was caused by defective equipment, pilot error or crew negligence, you could have grounds for a claim.
  • Bicycle Accidents - When riding a bicycle, cyclists are not afforded the same level of protection that is given to those who are in passenger vehicles. Without the airbags, sturdy build and the like, injuries from a collision can be devastating in nature.
  • Birth Injuries - All too often, children will suffer from serious injuries during labor and delivery or even in the months leading up to birth. This can result in serious trauma, such as Erb's palsy, brachial plexus injuries, cerebral palsy and even oxygen deficiency leading to brain damage.
  • Car Accident - Over a quarter of a million people suffer injuries annually in car accidents and over 40,000 people suffer death as a result. If negligence was the cause of your car accident, you should not hesitate to get an experienced lawyer on your side to help file a claim.
  • Construction Accidents - The construction industry is largely recognized as one of the most dangerous – from the heavy machinery to the heights and tools, the injuries that can be sustained on the jobsite are severe. In cases of this, you could have grounds to file workers' compensation or personal injury.
  • Defective Products - As consumers, we have a tendency to have natural faith in the products that are being sold to us. However, not every product that makes it onto the market shelf is 100% safe – in fact, in many cases they are inherently dangerous and can cause serious injuries as a result.
  • Dog Bites - Owners of dogs have a responsibility to ensure that their animal is behaving and not endangering others. When they do not restrain their dog, do not properly train it or otherwise treat it recklessly and it attacks another, they should be held responsible for the damage.
  • Drunk Driving Accident - When a driver who is intoxicated by drugs and / or alcohol gets behind the wheel, they have a severely limited ability to handle the rigors of the road in a manner that they typically would. This can result in serious injuries and even wrongful death.
  • Elder Neglect - While nursing home staff are typically devoted to their patients and fully prepared to doing everything possible to helping them, in some cases, they can be understaffed or severely negligent. This can result in serious nursing home abuse and other forms of abuse.
  • Insurance Claims - While insurance companies might make all of the promises in the world, the truth is that they are a for-profit company and therefore only truly concerned about the bottom dollar. For this reason, they are never going to be eager to pay off claims and will often look to minimize the damage or outright deny it. At our firm, we are here to help ensure that your rights are justly looked after.
  • Medical Malpractice - When you have suffered a serious injury or illness because of the negligence or sheer recklessness of a medical professional, it is in your best interests to get the involvement of an experienced lawyer that you can trust. Malpractice is a severe issue and you should not be forced to suffer in silence.
  • Motorcycle Accident - While it is the common tendency of many people to assume that motorcyclists are the cause of most accidents, the truth is that the root cause can often be attributed to a driver of a passenger vehicle who did not take proper precautions to look out for these smaller vehicles.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries - Any injury that affects the spinal cord can be classified as catastrophic; the spine is one of the most vital parts of the human body and when it sustains damage, it can result in long-term medical care and life-altering consequences.
  • Tobacco Litigation - If you have suffered adverse side effects from the use of tobacco or from secondhand smoke, you could have grounds to file a claim. At our firm, we recognize the complexities of tobacco litigation and can help those who are victims of things such as environmental tobacco smoke.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury - Damage done to the brain can be sustained in anything from car accidents to construction accidents and can leave a victim permanently altered – with short-term memory loss, decreased cognitive functioning and even sometimes in need of permanent medical care.
  • Truck Accident - Every year, there are over 450,000 truck accidents which result in over 5,000 deaths and countless injuries. While Hawaii has taken measures to reduce these catastrophic motor vehicle accidents, they still occur and can result in some of the most catastrophic injuries.
  • Wrongful Death - If you have lost a loved one to a tragic, fatal accident, then you have grounds to file a claim and should seek to contact a member of our firm. While a wrongful death claim cannot bring back your loved one, it can help provide you with compensation for things such as funeral expenses, lost future earnings, medical expenses and even compensation for pain and suffering.
