Accident Lawyer Hawaii - Deadlines Deadlines for filing a Recreational Accident claim in Hawaii

A claim arising out of a recreational accident may be subject to the two-year statute of limitations in Hawaii in some situations.

You must file your claims in court prior to the expiration of such deadlines, or your claims may be lost—regardless of their merit. To be wise it is recommended that you contact an attorney, lawyer or law firm experienced in recreational accidents right away after an accident giving rise to injuries occurs.

Brief overview of Recreational Accident claims- in Hawaii

Recreation accidents in Hawaii occur in a large number of different activities. Recreational and entertainment activities here seem only to be limited by the bounds of human imagination. A few of the more challenging activities include surfing, body boarding (bodyboarding), body surfing (bodysurfing) and riding all kinds of things- dirtbikes, horses, jetskis (jet skis), ATVs, etc. Then there are amusement park rides like roller coasters, parasailing, paragliding, gliding, parachuting, bungee jumping, mud sliding, hiking, trail riding, and the like. People here are sometimes even injured doing the more mundane things like playing tourist, sightseeing (siteseeing), going to our scenic lookouts, walking around Diamond Head, shopping and the like.

Some recreational accidents in Hawaii involve an injury received because of a dangerous condition on property. Many of these accidents are now suhject to Hawaii's recreational use statute which shields many landowners from liability for accidents occurring on their property. Business that are involved in recreational activities (and which charge for their services and property use) generally are not able to take advantage of this shield from liability. Such an owner or occupant of real property are required to take reasonable steps to eliminate any unreasonable risk Accident Lawyer Hawaii - Watch Your Step of harm posed by the property to people who may come onto it. Depending upon the situation this may be done either by correcting a dangerous condition or by warning about it. The owner or occupant is responsible for conditions known about and which should have been known about. If you wish to find out more about Premises Liability law in the State of Hawaii, please review the Brief Overview set forth on the Fall/Slip/Trip page.

Other recreational activity injuries occur as a result of swimming, diving, surfing, body-boarding or otherwise using the ocean. We have a particular interest in certain types of leashes used on bodyboards (body boards), like the Morey boogieboards, which have inflexible leashes that pose dangers to the user. For these and other swimming, diving, surfing and body-boarding accident claims claims, please contact us.

Recent Personal Injury and Car Accident News

Future damages can be hard to prove in a personal injury case. But, nonetheless, the Hawaii courts hold that future damages may be awarded where there is competent medical testimony to demonstrate a future loss (such as a permanent injury or future complications, disability, limitations or pain and suffering). But supporting medical testimony is critical. "We have held that where the issue as to permanency of an injury or as to future pain or suffering is subjective in character, there must be competent expert opinion testimony as to the permanency of an injury or as to future pain and suffering before a jury may be permitted to consider such damages." Bachran v. Morishige, 469 P.2d 808, 813 (Haw. 1970)
