Spinal Cord Injury Deadlines - Catastrophic Injury:
The deadlines to file most Spinal Cord 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 Spinal Cord 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 Spinal Cord injuries occurs.
If you wish to do so, please do not hesitate to

Recent Personal Injury and Car Accident News
In Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. v. Superior Court of California, No. 16-466 (June 19, 2017), the U.S. Supreme Court held that a state court does not generally have specific personal jurisdiction to entertain class-action claims by non-resident plaintiffs against a company headquartered outside of the forum state (here Bristol-Myers Squibb was not based in California). In future class action claims against nationwide corporate defendants, it appears that the U.S. Supreme Court is generally requiring piecemeal litigation in each state where a plaintiff was injured, instead of allowing for a single consolidated class action in a single state court lawsuit.
