Restaurant Fire Injuries in Hawaii

Honolulu, HI - Injury, Road Closures Prompted by Restaurant Fire on Kapiolani Blvd

People get hurt in preventable accidents every single day. These accidents stem from the negligence of product manufacturers, property owners, contractors, building managers, and landlords.

When a restaurant fire leaves a victim with injuries, they are eligible to bring a claim against the person responsible.

The last thing on a physician’s mind when treating burn injuries is the cost. For victims, however, the expense is often a major issue. Treatment for a severe burn injury can easily run upwards of $200,000. 

This total does not include the numerous other financial hurdles that victims and their families face. These include lost wages, reduced earning capacity, reconstructive surgeries, and support services for their emotional trauma.
