What Is Personal Injury?

When you’ve been hurt by someone else’s conduct, you’ve suffered a personal injury. Whether it’s from a car crash or getting hurt on someone’s property, personal injuries–legally called “torts”–happen every single day, all over the world.

Thankfully, most folks in Hawaii never need to know what is and isn’t a tort. But for those who do suffer injuries because of someone else’s actions or inaction, knowing what rights you have may be the difference between being made whole and financial or physical ruin.

When a medical professional fails to do their job properly, it can often lead to devastating injuries. Let us Maui medical malpractice lawyers see if we can help.

However, we will provide those costs on your behalf and deduct them from any settlement or trial proceeds. In the event there is no award, we’ll receive no fee.
