What is a personal injury claim?

Hawaii personal injury claims

Personal injury claims are claims for damages arising out of the wrongful conduct of others. For such damages to be addressed in Hawaii's courts, generally the cause of action giving rise to such a claim must have sufficient connections to Hawaii so that Hawaii's courts are willing to hear the matter. For individuals harmed in such a way through the fault or negligence of another party, Hawaii state law generally provides that the victim is entitled to assert a personal injury claim. This is usually done through an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of Hawaii. Such a claim is an opportunity to receive compensation for the costs associated with the injuries and the resulting damages and loss. Personal injury claims require that the claimant show that they suffered damages and that another party is responsible for those damages, due to their lack of reasonable care, recklessness, intentional conduct or otherwise. Most personal injury claims which are asserted by claimants and handled by a lawyer in the state of Hawaii arise as the result of negligence or failure to exercise the appropriate care situations; strict liability, recklessness, intentional conduct and other bases for liability make up only a small portion of personal injury claims.

There are many different reasons why personal injury claims arise. These include car accidents, other motor vehicle accidents, product defect accidents, construction accidents, dangerous dogs and other animals, boating, ocean and maritime accidents, wrongful death, drunk drivers, injuries from falls, electrical accidents, burn accidents, elevator accidents, medical malpractice, other professional negligence, dangerous conditions on property, safety violations and so forth.

Initial Steps in Pursuing a Personal Injury Claim


Successful resolution of a personal injury claim can be critical to the future of the claimant. The funds recovered in a personal injury claim can pay back bills and ensure proper medical care for the future. They also can help to prevent enormous financial problems related to the injuries. Such claims often include claims for tangible losses such as a past wage loss, a loss of future income, medical expenses, vocational rehabilitation expenses, maintenance and cure, substitute services and the like. Such claims also often include claims for intangible losses such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, loss of love and injury claim may never get your life back to what it was before the injury, but with the help of an experienced personal injury attorney, you may at least be able to recover some of the losses from the accident.

Sometimes it is necessary to take a deposition for use at a trial after the discovery cut-off has already passed. There is a line of Federal cases which recognize the difference between discovery depositions and trial testimony preservation depositions and allow the latter to be taken even after the discovery cut-off has occurred. See, eg., Charles v. Wade, 665 F.2D 661 (5th Cir. 1982) and Estenfelder v. The Gates Corporation, 199 F.R.D.351 (D. Colo. 2001).
