Spinal injuries suffered in car accidents can be costly

Injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents can run the spectrum of severity. Many Hawaiians are lucky enough to escape their wreck unharmed. Others are fortunate to suffer only minor bumps, bruises and scrapes. Yet, those on the extreme end of the spectrum can suffer life-changing or life-ending injuries. For these individuals, and their families, their newfound injuries can dictate how they live their lives and threaten their emotional and financial well-being.

Bedsores can be a sign of nursing home neglect

Hawaiian nursing homes are entrusted with the care of perhaps the most vulnerable amongst us: the elderly. Fortunately, carefully vetted nursing homes often provide sound care for loved ones, ensuring that they receive the individualized care they need and deserve. Yet, in some instances, nursing home staffs fail to live up to their duties, resulting in substandard and negligent care. This can result in a nursing home resident being seriously injured or killed in a way that is wholly preventable. In these situations, victims and their families should carefully consider whether pursuing a nursing home neglect lawsuit is in their best interests.

Most dangerous intersections in Hawaii

Every year, millions of tourists go to Hawaii to take in all of the sights and culture. Many people end up needing to rent cars or mopeds to get around, which makes for a lot of inexperienced drivers on some dangerous roads. You need to watch out for some of the most dangerous intersections in the state or else you could completely upend your vacation. 

A look at a basic premises liability claim

Entering property owned by a Hawaiian business should not be a dangerous act. Yet, far too often property owners fail to ensure that their premises are safe for those they invite onto their property. This can leave unsuspecting individuals with serious injuries, whether resulting from a slip- or trip-and-fall, inadequate lighting or inadequate security. When an individual is hurt under these circumstances, then he or she may want to consider taking legal action in hopes of recovering compensation for what could be extensive damages, including medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Medical malpractice and lack of informed consent

When Hawaiians go to the hospital they expect to receive appropriate and effective treatment. This may mean obtaining an accurate diagnosis, being administered the proper medication or undergoing the right kind of surgery. Yet, far too often medical professionals fail to live up to their responsibilities. When this happens, unsuspecting patients can be left with serious, sometimes life-threatening injuries.
