Every motorist that travels on roads in Hawaii accepts a certain amount of personal risk each time he or she gets behind the wheel. When car accidents occur and result in personal injury to a driver or passenger in a vehicle, and those accidents are caused through another motorist’s negligence, injured victims sometimes choose to file legal claims against those deemed responsible for the injuries suffered. In cases where a victim does not survive, an immediate family member is able to act on the victim’s behalf in court.
At Cronin, Fired, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks, our attorneys are dedicated to helping to those who have suffered injury through no fault of their own in motor vehicle accidents. Our accomplished legal team is especially effective in handling cases involving catastrophic injuries.

Our experienced personal injury lawyers are prepared to help clients seek the maximum possible compensation available.
