How Do I Know If I Have a Valid Kalawao County Personal Injury Case?

If you were injured due to the negligence of another individual or entity, you will need to establish the fault of the other party and also prove that you have actual damages that resulted from the incident. To be eligible to file a personal injury claim in Hawaii, you must prove that the defendant was the direct cause of your injuries as well as the nature and scope of your damages. If you are able to prove both of these elements, you most likely have a valid case.

What Damages Can I Recover in a Kalawao Personal Injury Claim?

The specifics of every personal injury case are different, however, here are the three basic categories all damages generally fall into:

  • Economic damages: Economic damages compensate the victim for financial losses incurred through hospital bills, property damage repairs or replacements, and lost income.
  • Non-economic damages: These cover emotional damages such as loss of fellowship, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.
  • Punitive damages: In rare cases, a court might award punitive damages in order to penalize the liable party and discourage similar future acts of negligence or unlawfulness.

What is the Statute of Limitations in Hawaii?

Any personal injury claim filed in Hawaii is subject to a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is a deadline imposed on anyone who brings a claim of personal injury. If the plaintiff fails to settle their case or file a lawsuit before the statute lapses, they lose their right to recover any financial compensation for their injuries and other damages.

Since the statute of limitations can vary depending on the facts of your case, it is crucial to consult with a personal injury attorney with extensive experience handling all types of personal injury cases.

What is the Modified Comparative Negligence Doctrine?

In a personal injury claim, a negligence doctrine is a state’s legal structure for determining how the plaintiff’s actions affect their ability to recover compensation. Hawaii abides by the comparative negligence doctrine. This structure decreases the total compensation available to a plaintiff in proportion to their degree of fault. As long as the plaintiff is not more than 50% liable for the accident, they should still be able to collect partial compensation.
