Regardless of which island an accident takes place on, the investigative workup of the case usually will be done by local investigators hired by this office.

Once that is completed, there may be expert witness workup of the facts and circumstances of the case.

A scene photograph with markings made or authorized by an eyewitness during his or her deposition to show the location of the impact involved in a motor vehicle accident is generally admissible in Hawaii and, even if the eyewitness does not remember the entire layout of the accident scene, the picture's exclusion by a trial court is normally grounds for reversal. See, Samsom v. Nahalu, Hawai'i Supreme Court No. SCWC-10-0000102 (December 4, 2015).
