The nuisance that can endanger neighborhood children

The weather is suitable almost year-round for children to play outside in Hawaii, which is good when you want to get them out of the house and away from video games, but can be worrisome if some of your neighbors have attractive nuisances on their property. This does not include the neighborhood bully or the annoying ice cream truck that drives down the street several times a week. An attractive nuisance is a legal term for something on a neighbor’s property that could threaten your child’s safety.

Distracted driving can be the cause of car accidents in Hawaii

Not more than a few decades ago, young drivers were warned to avoid drunk driving, to operate within the posted speeds of the roads and to take their time when making maneuvers on streets and highways. While all of those precautions are still relevant today, new Hawaiian drivers now must contend with a myriad of other hazards that simply did not exist when their parent were learning to drive. In particular, hand-held devices like cellphones are a modern and major form of distraction to drivers of all ages, and they are a threat to the personal safety of all individuals on Honolulu roads.

Nursing home neglect is a serious legal matter

Not every injury that occurs in a Hawaiian nursing home is a case of abuse or neglect. However, it is sadly common for residents of these types of facilities to suffer serious and sometimes life-threatening harm when they receive substandard care. Negligence is often the basis for nursing home abuse and neglect claims, and this post will introduce some of the ways that it may factor into a personal injury case.

Helping you take action following a diagnostic error

Resident get sick or injured just like anyone else, and when this occurs, they too rely on the expertise of medical professionals. Unfortunately, the work of doctors is not always sound. Errors and mistakes could occur, causing a patient to suffer harms. When medical error happen, it is possible for injured patients to take action, helping them hold a negligent medical professional accountable while also seeking a monetary award for his or her losses.

Representation for vacation accident victims

Hawaii is often described as a paradise. With its endless beaches and unique culture, there is no question why tourists from across the world seek it out as a vacation destination. However, when accidents happen and individuals find themselves suffering from injuries caused by others, getting help in paradise can be an absolute nightmare.

Medication errors are a preventable form of medical malpractice

Certain illnesses and ailments are treatable by pharmaceuticals. For example, if a Honolulu resident is unfortunate enough to come down with strep throat, their doctor may prescribe them an antibiotic to treat the infection and help them regain their health. In hospitals, offices and treatment centers throughout the country, individuals are given medications to improve their conditions and help them get better.
