The deadlines to file most catastrophic accident claims is generally the same
as for most other torts (personal injuries) in the State of Hawaii. The deadline is generally
two (2) years from the date of the injury. It should be noted, however, that there are a number
of exceptions to this rule. For example, claims for minors can frequently be brought until a year or more after the child attains the age of majority.
It is important to note that catastrophic injury claims must be filed in court prior to the expiration of the applicable deadlines, or the claims are likely to be lost
regardless of their merit. To be wise, it is recommended that you immediately contact an attorney after an accident giving rise to catastrophic injuries occurs.
