What Types Of Damages Can You Recover In A Hawaii Personal Injury Lawsuit?

A personal injury lawsuit can address the wide variety of ways that an injury can impact your life. These include direct expenses like the cost of medical care, property damage or wages lost as a result of your injuries. They can also include other challenges like the pain and suffering you experience in the aftermath of an accident.

Can You Still Have A Personal Injury Case If You Were A Visitor To Hawaii?

Traveling outside your home state does not impact your ability to file a personal injury claim. You can still take legal action to hold negligent people and businesses responsible for the harm their actions caused.

Out-of-state visitors can benefit from the experience of a seasoned attorney with a deep understanding of local laws. These attorneys can provide clear communication and support, representing your interests in court proceedings or settlement negotiations, even after you return home.

What Evidence Can Help Your Personal Injury Case?

Illustrating the full impact of an accident and proving liability often depend on evidence. Some of the evidence that can bolster your claim includes:

  • Police reports
  • Records of your medical care, including medical bills
  • Photographs of your injuries, the scene of the accident and other damage
  • Statements from witnesses
  • Information about your income to illustrate the wages lost as a result of your injuries
  • Physical items damaged in the accident, including clothing or personal items
  • Journals or statements from mental health professionals to demonstrate the emotional challenges you experience

The evidence you collect can be important as you fight for full and fair compensation. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist you in gathering this evidence and presenting it in a compelling way that makes your voice heard.

Personal injury lawsuits are filed as a result of negligent or careless behavior that has caused injury or other damages to another person. Injuries and damages can also result from defective products and unfair or deceptive business and insurance practices. The ultimate goal of the personal injury process is to determine who is responsible for the injuries and make sure that the responsible party or parties compensate the injured victim for the damages suffered.

All personal injury claims are handled on a contingency basis. This means you and your family will pay us nothing until we recover for you.

We will listen carefully to your concerns and answer any questions you have throughout each stage of the personal injury process, which includes:

  • Initial attorney meeting: It is important that you come prepared to discuss the details of the accident and the full extent of your injuries. You should also bring all letters, medical records and bills, insurance policy information, accident reports and other documents with you to the meeting. At this time, we can help you determine whether you have a potentially successful personal injury case.
  • Insurance benefits: We will help you process medical and accident insurance claims, as well as coordinate communications with insurance companies.
  • Complaints and motions: We will prepare and file any relevant legal documents with the court to make sure your case is argued thoroughly and effectively.
  • Investigatory fact-finding and discovery: Our attorneys will carefully investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident to gather all relevant evidence. In some cases, accident experts and investigators assist in this process.
  • Settlement prior to trial: Although our focus is on trial preparation, we also always explore all options and opportunities for settlement before trial.
  • Trial, arbitration or mediation: Using our vast experience as skilled and successful trial, arbitration and mediation lawyers, we will persuasively present the evidence in your case to obtain a successful verdict or recovery for you.

Throughout the personal injury process, our lawyers will fight hard to protect your rights and obtain fair compensation for your injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one.

How Long Will Your Personal Injury Claim Take?

The timeline for a personal injury lawsuit depends on a variety of factors. Details like the severity of your injuries and questions about whose actions contributed to the accident can affect the amount of time it takes to reach a fair resolution.

No matter your situation, the experienced attorneys at Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks can help you understand the timeline for your unique situation, navigate the claims process and fight for compensation at every stage of the legal process. Because we represent clients on a contingency fee basis, you will pay nothing for legal representation unless you receive compensation.

Resolving Claims With Your Best Interests In Mind

Do you dread the thought of reliving the details of your accident at a trial? While our lawyers prepare every claim as if it will end up before a judge and jury, most cases settle prior to reaching that point. Not only do we aggressively negotiate each claim to obtain a successful recovery, but we also fully explore alternative dispute resolution options, including mediation and arbitration services.
