If you are unfamiliar with personal injury claims, you may wish to review our page:

What is a personal injury claim?





After an accident it is usually very important to promptly preserve whatever evidence is available regarding the accident. Here at Accident Lawyer Hawaii we will assist you with documenting your injury claims and preparing a solid case based upon evidence which will be admissible at trial. magnifying glass The preservation of evidence usually involves locating and documenting witness statements, taking and preserving photographs and videos, locating items, and documenting the injuries and damages arising out of the accident. There is often evidence that may for some reason be perishable or subject to change over time. Witness statements should be taken before memories fade or other reasons intervene to prevent the collection of this information. To examine these issues more closely, please visit the following page:

Inital Steps in Making Your Claim





Every type of accident claim has a deadline for filing the claim in court. These differ from state to state. The deadlines given on this website are those applicable here in the state of Hawaii - since we are located in Hawaii. These deadlines are generally the same whether your claims arose in Honolulu, on Maui, on the Big Island, on Kauai or elsewhere in the State. This type of deadline is known as the Statute of Limitations. After the expiration of this time period, the claim usually will be lost - regardless of its merits. There are various exceptions to the deadlines (minority, incompetency, etc.), so it may still be worth evaluating a claim even after the deadline has expired. Please note that because of these deadlines, you must act promptly on any claims which you may wish to pursue.

Recent Personal Injury and Car Accident News

The Hawaii Supreme Court created quite a stir with its recent February, 2014 decision in Cohan v. Marriott SCPW-13-0000092 (Civ. No. 11-1-2192)(February 27, 2014). The Supreme Court reversed a trial court order requiring Mr. Cohan to sign releases for his medical information and to agree to a Stipulated Protective Order. The Supreme Court upheld the privacy protections of Mr. Cohan and stated: "We hold that the privacy provision of the Hawaii Constitution, Article I, Section 6, protects Cohan's health information against disclosure outside the underlying litigation."
