When To Hire a Car Accident Lawyer

As a general guideline, it’s best to contact an experienced attorney after a car accident as soon as possible. There are a couple reasons for this, the first being the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is a law which is implemented on a state level which allocates a specific time period when personal injury cases can be filed. According to Hawaii law H.R.S. § 657-7, Hawaii has a two-year timeline.

This means you have two years to file your claim or you will most likely lose your ability to do so along with your ability to recover compensation. There are some exceptions to this law which can change your filing time depending on the specifics of your case, so it’s important to speak to an attorney about your case as soon as possible.

Beyond the statute of limitations, car accident injuries can pose a unique challenge in that they are most usually soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue injuries are injuries that affect the tendons, ligaments and muscles of the body, such as whiplash. Like whiplash, these types of injuries typically progressively get worse over the course of a few days or weeks after the injury occurred.

Because of this, many injury victims sign a compensation agreement with an insurance company before talking to a lawyer only to later discover that their injuries are worse than they initially believed but are unable to recover any additional compensation to cover their additional costs. If you have suffered injuries at the hands of a negligent driver, call our Hawaii car accident attorney for help today!

I Feel unharmed, Should I Still Go to the Doctor?

Even if you do not appear to have any major injuries, you may discover over time that you were, in fact, hurt and you just did not know it. A Hawaii car crash is a chaotic situation that can have any number of issues that can result in any number of injuries. Because of these risks, your first steps following a car accident in Hawaii should always be to seek medical attention. Car accidents can be extremely destructive to the human body, leading to severe injuries and even death.

Some common car accident injuries include:

The injuries that result from a car accident can last a lifetime, which is why it is so important to understand your legal rights following an accident. After you begin treatment with a medical professional, contact an experienced car accident attorney in Hawaii to work on recovering the cost of your medical bills.

Did a Negligent Driver Cause Your Accident?

Car accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. In some cases, there is truly no one at fault, but many times, the accident is the result of someone being negligent.

Some examples of negligence in car accidents inc

The problem with a negligent driver is that it puts so many people at risk, including pedestrians and bicyclists, as well as other drivers. The driver is in control of a potentially deadly vehicle, and it only takes one moment of inattention or one careless mistake to take someone’s life or leave them injured for years to come.

The Hawaii accident attorneys at Davis Levin Livingston are here to help you hold negligent drivers accountable for the harm they cause. Call (808) 740-0633 for a free consultation of your case!

How Can an Attorney Help with a Car Accident Case?

If you were hurt due to the negligence of another driver, there is a very good chance that you could pursue a successful personal injury case against the responsible party. Our firm has extensive experience in this area, and we are ready to help you through the process.

When you hire our firm, we will investigate the accident and gather evidence to support the case, including witness testimony. Our purpose is to prove that the other driver was at fault, something we will work very hard to do.

If your lawsuit is successful, you should get the money you need to take care of yourself, your family, and further medical care. It will not take back the accident, but it will make it easier to move on with your life.
