A review of negligence as the grounds for a personal injury claim

This Honolulu-based personal injury legal blog has provided to its readers a number of informative posts that have discussed numerous ways that victims of personal injuries may encounter their harm. Victims are made through vehicle and boat accidents, the use of unsafe products and accidents at poorly maintained properties, and through poor care and attention by medical professionals. Although the ways in which personal injury victims are made are unique, there is generally one common element that ties all of their incidents together into a single legal theory: negligence.

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.

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.

Understanding injuries incurred at hotels and resorts

Hawaii is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The pleasant climate and array of exciting outdoor adventures that are available for visitors to experience make it one of the most sought after destinations for travelers. When travelers arrive on the islands, they are often taken to magnificent resorts and hotels that offer them comfortable accommodations for the duration of their visits.

Understanding the elements of a slip and fall case

Although Hawaii is known for its beautiful vistas and sun-drenched beaches, it is not uncommon for residents and tourists to experience the powerful and sometimes violent rain storms that blow in from the ocean. After a storm, the roads and sidewalks throughout Honolulu may be riddled with puddles and slick with rain. While wetness is generally something that people can safely cope with it can cause otherwise safe surfaces to become slick.

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.

New ordinance in Honolulu emphasizes pedestrian safety

Residents of Honolulu are used to walking to and from many destinations. Because it is a gorgeous and convenient place to travel by foot, foot traffic is almost as common as motor vehicle traffic. Because roadways are altered to increase the safety for motorists, the same should be considered for those walking on sidewalks and near the streets. However, concern for pedestrian safety is not always in the forefront of people's minds.
