Maui Hawaii In order to maintain prompt contact- every effort is made to respond to communications the day that they occur. For our Outer Island clients with Maui, Kauai or Big Island claims - we have frequently advanced the costs of travel for depositions and client conferences here in Honolulu. Frequently, an attorney will also visit you on your home island to travel with you to the accident scene and/or to see and record the impact of the injuries on your life.

We may also hire expert witness to workup the case. Although there are competent expert witnesses in some fields on the outer islands, for the most part the most experienced and qualified experts are located on the island of Oahu.

Recent Personal Injury and Car Accident News and Cases related to Maui, Kauai, Big Island and other outer islands

Future damages can be hard to prove in a personal injury case. But, nonetheless, the Hawaii courts hold that future damages may be awarded where there is competent medical testimony to demonstrate a future loss (such as a permanent injury or future complications, disability, limitations or pain and suffering). But supporting medical testimony is critical. "We have held that where the issue as to permanency of an injury or as to future pain or suffering is subjective in character, there must be competent expert opinion testimony as to the permanency of an injury or as to future pain and suffering before a jury may be permitted to consider such damages." Bachran v. Morishige, 469 P.2d 808, 813 (Haw. 1970)
