After an accident it is usually very important
(from the point of view of making a claim) to preserve
whatever evidence is available regarding the accident. This
usually involves keeping, saving, storing and preserving whatever evidence
it is possible to keep, save, store or preserve and photographing and/or videotaping
all evidence that may for some reason be perishable or subject to
change. It also involves locating and interviewing witnesses to the
accident and others who may be familiar with the conditions which
gave rise to the accident before memories fade or other reasons
intervene to prevent the collection of this information.

These differ from state to state- the deadlines given on
this website are those applicable in the state of Hawaii-
since Brain Injury Lawyer Hawaii is located in Hawaii.
This type of deadline is known as the Statute of Limitations.
After the expiration of this time period, the claim usually
will be lost- regardless of its merits. There are various
exceptions to the deadlines (minority, incompetency, etc.),
so it may still be worth evaluating a claim even after the
deadline has expired. Please note that because of

Hawaii Brain Injury- Current News & Articles
Future damages can be hard to prove in a personal injury case. But, nonetheless, the Hawaii courts hold that future damages may be awarded where there is competent medical testimony to demonstrate a future loss (such as a permanent injury or future complications, disability, limitations or pain and suffering). But supporting medical testimony is critical. "We have held that where the issue as to permanency of an injury or as to future pain or suffering is subjective in character, there must be competent expert opinion testimony as to the permanency of an injury or as to future pain and suffering before a jury may be permitted to consider such damages." Bachran v. Morishige, 469 P.2d 808, 813 (Haw. 1970)
