We all want to keep ourselves and our families free from injury as much as possible. However, at times, you can still suffer sudden injury no matter how careful you may be. This is because the negligent or intentional actions of others that are beyond our control can cause accidents or incidents that result in injury to you or a loved one. Fortunately, if you suffer unnecessary injuries, Hawaii law allows you to recover for all of your injury-related losses from the responsible party.

Proving Negligence in Your Personal Injury Case
In order to recover for personal injury, you must prove that another person or party either acted intentionally (as is assault cases) or with negligence.
In order to prove negligence, you must sufficiently show the following elements:
- The party in question had a legal duty of care in that particular situation;
- The party in question failed to meet that duty of care;
- The breach of the duty caused your injury; and
- You suffered actual damages as a result.
For example, if a texting driver caused an accident, you can show that the driver had a duty to operate his motor vehicle in a reasonably safe manner, that he failed to do so by texting while driving, and that you suffered injury and losses in the resulting accident. The skilled personal injury attorneys at Davis Levin Livingston are highly experienced in identifying and proving negligence to help personal injury victims recover.
