Honolulu Personal Injury &
Medical Malpractice Attorney

To many residents in the continental United States, those who live in Hawaii seem to be living a life of tranquility, and those visiting Hawaii as tourists do not expect they will be seriously injured due to someone else’s negligence. Actually, of course, those who live in Hawaii and those who visit Hawaii have the same concerns and pressures as people in the rest of the country, even if they do get the chance to deal with them amidst exquisite natural surroundings. Like people everywhere, Hawaiians slip and fall and have traffic accidents due to the negligence of others. Like the rest of Americans, they are also sometimes the unfortunate victims of medical malpractice. If you live in Hawaii you are as likely as a resident of any other state to require the services of a competent, caring personal injury attorney like Brian Cummings.

Helping Accident Victims in Hawaii

Personal injuries can occur in a variety of ways. Although some injuries are caused by personal awkwardness or lack of attention, many “accidents” result from another person’s distraction, impairment, negligence or reckless disregard of the law. In the latter cases, Cummings Law will take your side, assuming oversight of all legal and insurance matters so you can take the time you need to recover from your physical injury and emotional trauma.
Types of Cases Cummings Law handles include:
  • Car, truck, motorcycle and motor scooter accidents
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Mass transit accidents
  • Ride-hailing (e.g. Uber, Lyft) accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents (premises liability)
  • Construction accidents
  • Medical malpractice, including diagnostic/surgical/anesthesia/prescription errors, hospital negligence, birth injuries

Any of the above can cause wrongful death, meaning a fatality that is the result of another party’s negligence, recklessness, or malice. At Cummings Law, we firmly believe that any party responsible for the serious injury or death of another must be held accountable and that the victim is entitled to the highest amount of compensation allowed by law.

How Serious Injuries Can Change Your Life

If you are involved in a slip and fall, traffic, or construction accident for which someone else is responsible, or if you have been victimized by medical malpractice of a hospital or healthcare professional, you may have suffered one of the following:

  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Neuromuscular damage
  • Fractured bones and/or amputation
  • Burns
  • Internal bleeding and/or organ damage
  • Loss of sight, hearing, or sensation

In addition to agonizing pain, these injuries may result in your inability to work, permanent scarring or other disfigurement, permanent disability, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), cognitive impairment or paralysis. Depending on the nature of your injury, you may need surgery, rehabilitation, assistive devices, powerful medications, home care, childcare, long-term treatment, or dialysis. You may also require alterations made to your home to accommodate your condition. As you are probably aware, none of these consequences is inexpensive, which is why you need an aggressive personal injury attorney by your side.
