How vicarious liability can apply to a motor vehicle accident

An accident caused by a semi-truck or some other type of commercial vehicle can have devastating consequences for unsuspecting motorists. Far too often, these individuals suffer catastrophic injuries such as those that affect their brain and spinal cord. The physical, emotional and financial losses that stem from these motor vehicle accidents can be overwhelming and threaten to derail an individual's life at a time when they feel utterly cheated by the party who caused the accident in question.

Medical malpractice claim filed after delayed diagnosis

If you've ever conducted an online search in hopes of diagnosing some symptoms that you have been exhibiting, then you've probably noticed that a single symptom can be a sign of something as minor as the common cold or as severe as cancer or some other type of terminal disease. In other words, usually, without additional testing, it is impossible to determine what causes a particular symptom to manifest. This is why we turn to medical professionals who are educated and trained to make accurate and timely diagnoses.

The next time you travel down one of Hawaii's roadways, take a look around to see just how many motorists are actively using their cellphones behind the wheel.

Dangerous products can lead to personal injury claims

Those who live and work in Hawaii, as well as those who visit the state, don't give much thought to the products they use. This is for good reason. After all, federal regulations seek to ensure the safety of these products so that consumers are not put in harm's way. Under these regulations, many products, including medications and automobiles, must undergo rigorous testing. In theory, this testing weeds out unsafe products. However, the sad reality is that far too many dangerous or defective products make it into the market, and innocent, unsuspecting consumers are injured as a result.

Our firm fights for favorable personal injury claim outcomes

Previously, this blog discussed the costs associated with caring for various types of spinal cord injuries. The grim reality is that this type of injury in financially ruinous for many victims, and they may not even be the only type of injury suffered by an individual who is harmed in a motor vehicle accident. Additionally, those who suffer catastrophic injuries in a car accident often have other damages that are noneconomic in nature. Trying to figure out a way to pay for unexpected and exorbitant medical expenses can be stressful and overwhelming, especially when trying to focus on one's recovery.
