Injury Lawyer Hawaii- Deadlines

Burn injuries are some of the most disheartening and severe injuries resulting from accidents. Sometimes burn (fire or chemical) accidents can cause death and serious injury. Sometimes disfigurement and residual medical risks are permanent. Thus, there are special considerations which must be taken into account whenever an accident occurs involving burns- whether from chemicals or from fire.

Types of burn (fire or chemical) accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Chemical and flammable substance trucking and air freight accidents
  • Fires ignited by defective products
  • Accidents with defective or weak chemical containers
  • Fires ignited by frayed, damaged or ungrounded wiring
  • Chemical spill accidents
  • Fires initiated by sagging power lines or uninsulated transmission line contacts
  • Safety violations when handling or using chemicals or flammable materials
  • Fire alarm and smoke alarm failures
  • Fabrics which do not comply with flame retardant requirements

If your burn (fire or chemical) accident injury occurred as a result of the negligence or fault of someone other than your employer, you may have a claim against the at-fault party. If you were seriously injured in an burn (fire or chemical) accident, you may wish to hire an attorney to assist you with your situation.

Recent Personal Injury and Car Accident News

An important victory in the fight for individual rights (as opposed to insurer rights) is the case of Yukumoto and HMSA v. Tawahara. In that case on May 26, 2017, the Hawaii Supreme Court rejected the efforts of a health insurer who tried to convert its insurance coverage into a 'loan agreement' and recover its medical expense payments from Mr. Yukumoto when he had a 3rd party claim - in spite of the fact that he was not being fully compensated for his losses. This insidious insurance practice has been damaging the citizens and members of the Hawaii community for many years. For more info, see the decision here: Yukumoto and HMSA v. Tawahara, Hawaii Sup. Ct. No. SCAP-15-0000460 (May 26, 2017).
