For our Outer Island clients with Maui, Kauai, Hawaii and other Outer Island claims - we have frequently advanced the costs of travel for depositions and client conferences here in Honolulu. Frequently, an attorney will also visit you on your home island to travel with you to the accident scene and/or to see and record the impact of the injuries on your life.

Handling an Outer Island injury claim from a main office in Honolulu does not pose any significant challenges to a timely and successful prosecution of the claim. Regardless of which island an accident takes place on, the investigative workup of the case usually will be done by local investigators hired by this office. Photos, videos, statements and the like will be gathered by a local investigative firm familiar with the accident scene and the tendencies of the people in that area. Once that is completed, there may be expert witness workup of the facts and circumstances of the case. Although there are competent expert witnesses in many fields on the outer islands, for the most part the experienced and highly qualified experts are located on the island of Oahu. Hence, there is generally a slight time and costs savings when working with an expert witness on an Outer Island case if the attorney is located in Honolulu.

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.
