After a fatal accident it is usually very important injury claim investigation (from the point of view of making a claim) to preserve whatever evidence is available regarding the accident. This usually involves documenting, saving, storing, and preserving whatever evidence it is possible to document, save, store and preserve and photographing and videotaping all evidence that may for some reason be perishable or subject to change. It also involves locating and interviewing witnesses to the accident and others who may be familiar with the conditions which gave rise to the accident before memories fade or other reasons intervene to prevent the collection of this information. To examine these issues more closely, please visit the following page:

Inital Steps in Making Your Claim

Two sister sites to this site address many of the types of accidents which can give rise to an injury claim. Since a number of considerations (such as the date for filing a claim) typically depend upon the type of accident involved, visiting these sites will provide further information for most personal injury claims in Hawaii. Motor vehicle accidents such as car, bus, truck, motorcycle, moped, auto and pedestrian accidents and drunk driver accidents are handled on the sister site- Car Accident Attorney Hawaii. Other types of accidents- such as explosions and fires, defective product liability claims, ocean and boating accidents, including Jones Act cases and maritime law, construction site and heavy equipment accidents, recreational accidents, elevator and escalator accidents, electrical accidents, bad faith insurance claims, dog bites and animal attacks, and fall accidents (such as falls from elevation, slip and fall and trip and fall accidents)- are addressed on another sister site- Accident Lawyer Hawaii - Attorney Wm Lawson. Please visit these sites at your convenience.

Every type of claim has a deadline for filing the claim in court. These differ from state to state- the deadlines given on this website are those applicable in the state of Hawaii- since we are located in the state of Hawaii. This type of deadline is known as the Statute of Limitations. After the expiration of this time period, the claim usually will be lost- regardless of its merits. There are various exceptions to the deadlines (minority, incompetency, etc.), so it may still be worth evaluating a claim even after the deadline has expired. Please note that because of these deadlines, you must act promptly to contact Wrongful Death Attorney Hawaii on any claims which you may wish to pursue.

Honolulu Hawaii wrongful death - Current News & Articles

A scene photograph with markings made or authorized by an eyewitness during his or her deposition to show the location of the impact involved in a motor vehicle accident is generally admissible in Hawaii and, even if the eyewitness does not remember the entire layout of the accident scene, the picture's exclusion by a trial court is normally grounds for reversal. See, Samson v. Nahalu, Hawai'i Supreme Court No. SCWC-10-0000102 (December 4, 2015).
