What damages may I pursue if I am hurt in a maritime accident?

There are many occupations that may require workers to perform their duties on ships, boats and other vessels.

For those with careers that keep them at sea, The Jones Act generally covers injuries caused by their employers and their work duties.

Fatal pedestrian accident claims life of Waianae man

Collisions between vehicles and humans are often tragedies. When a car hits a person, that person often has little to protect them from the unforgivingly hard surfaces of the vehicle, road and other obstacles that may be in their path. As a result, pedestrian accidents are often fatal occurrences that leave Hawaiian families coping with the losses of their loved ones.
