Pedestrian Accidents in Hawaii
Pedestrian accidents can be devastating. Unfortunately, these accidents are the cause of countless injuries every year in Hawaii. After being hurt in an accident, those harmed have the ability to take legal action against the responsible party. In general, it is critical to get in touch with an experienced Hawaii pedestrian accident lawyer right away.
Several reasons support this recommendation, with the first being the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is a legal regulation set at the state level, determining a specific timeframe during which personal injury cases can be submitted. In compliance with Hawaii law H.R.S. § 657-7, Hawaii has a two-year statute of limitation for claims involving personal injury.
This means you have a two-year window within which to initiate your claim; otherwise, you risk losing the opportunity to file a claim and seek compensation. Certain exceptions to this law can potentially alter your filing deadline, depending on the unique circumstances of your case. Therefore, it is crucial to consult with an attorney about your case without delay.
Taking quick legal action after suffering injuries in a crash can provide you with the best chance of protecting your rights and holding the negligent party accountable. Having a dedicated legal team by your side can make a significant difference when it comes to your ability to prevail.
