Pursue compensation after an accident

Accidents happen all across the Hawaiian Islands each and every day. When they do, individuals who are harmed due to the negligent or reckless behavior of others find themselves facing serious and sometimes life-threatening injuries that are in no way the result of their own conduct. Often, these victims discover that despite the fact that they played no role in causing the accident, they are still responsible for paying the costs associated with getting their lives back to normal.

Owners are responsible for the harm their dogs cause

Dogs are wonderful additions to Hawaiian homes and in some cases the animals become cherished parts of their families. While most pet owners take their responsibilities seriously, from time to time a domestic animal such as a dog is involved in a dangerous personal injury incident. Dog bites can be serious medical conditions and this post will generally discuss how Hawaiian law addresses these unfortunate situations.

What does it mean for a vessel to be unseaworthy?

The water that surrounds the islands of Hawaii provides both beautiful scenery and opportunity for commerce for the people of Honolulu. Many individuals enjoy spending time on the ocean for pleasure, but also many individuals rely on incomes from the work that they do on vessels and seagoing crafts.

What must be pleaded in a birth injury claim?

Birth injury legal cases are a subset of the wider legal field of medical malpractice. All cases of medical malpractice must be supported by evidence of negligence or other wrongdoing in order for an injured party to prevail and receive the damages they may need to get past their incident-related losses. In Honolulu, a child harmed in a preventable or negligence-based labor and delivery incident may have a claim for damages based on their sustained birth injuries.

Drunk driving accidents are a dangerous problem

An ocean may separate Hawaii from the mainland but unfortunately that buffer does nothing to insulate the islands from a truly national problem: drunk driving. Every year thousands of Americans lose their lives in collisions with alcohol-intoxicated drivers. Sadly, some of those victims are residents of this state.
