Government Liability


If you or someone you love has been injured in an auto accident, you have legal rights and may be eligible for financial compensation. The first step an auto accident lawyer takes when evaluating a civil claim is determining which parties can be held liable for damages. In auto accident cases, the party found to be primarily at fault is responsible for compensating any victims; however, in some cases, it may also be possible to hold the city, county, or state liable for damages if it can be shown that an accident occurred because of an unsafe road condition or other factors.

Serving Honolulu, Hawaii, an auto accident attorney from our firm can provide you with sound legal counsel and advise you of your rights if you believe you have a liability claim against the city, county, or state. At Leavitt Yamane & Soldner, we have the experience and legal knowledge you are seeking, and we invite you to contact our Honolulu, Hawaii law office to speak with an auto accident lawyer about your case.

Issues Of Governmental Liability

If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident, bicycle accident, or pedestrian accident because of an unsafe road condition or as a result of a government employee’s negligent or reckless actions, it may be possible to file a civil claim against the City, County, or State of Hawaii.

The following instances can create liability for the City and County or the State of Hawaii:
