Accident Lawyer Hawaii - Deadlines

Deadlines for Construction and Heavy Equipment Accident Claims

The deadline for filing most construction or heavy equipment accident claims in court in Hawaii is two (2) years from the date when the victim was exposed to the danger AND the injuries resulted therefrom. It should be noted, however, that there are exceptions to this rule- for example, claims against the City and County of Honolulu and the various other Counties must be filed with the appropriate agency within six (6) months of the date of the accident. Some statutes appear to indicate that there is also a maximum limit of six (6) years from the date of the alleged negligence in which to file a professional malpractice claim against an architect, a structural engineer, etc. 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 immediately contact an attorney after an accident giving rise to injuries occurs- please do not hesitate to :

In August 2018 3M Co. agreed to pay $9.1 million to settle allegations that it and its predecessor, Aearo Technologies Inc, knowingly sold defective combat ear plugs to the U.S. military. The ear plugs were too short for proper insertion into the users' ears and could easily loosen and not perform effectively. Military personnel who suffered hearing loss during combat or training exercises between 2003 to 2015 may qualify for a one-time award.
