Honolulu Personal Injury Attorney Serving Honolulu, HI
Leavitt Yamane & Soldner takes a team approach to serving personal injury victims in Honolulu and across Hawaii’s Neighbor Islands. We draw upon all of our firm’s skills, experience and resources to seek full and fair compensation for our clients.
If you have been injured through no fault of your own, you can’t count on an insurance company to protect you. The insurer’s goal will be to protect its profits.
Our goal, on the other hand, will be to maximize the amount you recover through a settlement or jury verdict. We will also strive to make the process of getting to that result as smooth and stress-free as possible so you can focus on your physical and emotional recovery. At every step in your case, we will keep you fully informed and answer any questions you have.
To schedule a free consultation, contact us today. You can talk directly with a member of our legal team who can get you started on the path to seeking legal relief.
Hawaii Accident Statistics
The Hawaii State Department of Health declared in September 2012 that personal injuries are “a major public health problem in Hawaii.”
A five-year study, titled “Injuries in Hawaii: 2007-2011,” found that personal injuries are “by far the leading cause of death among children and young adults, and the fourth-leading cause of death among state residents of all ages.”
Over the five years studied, a total of 3,355 Hawaii residents died from personal injuries. By far, most deaths – 2,159 or 64 percent – were due to accidents, the report said. Others were suicides (24 percent), homicides (3 percent) or of a nature that could not be determined (8 percent).
In addition to fatalities, Hawaii residents are the victims of 5,980 personal injuries requiring hospitalization and nearly 80,000 accidents resulting in visits to emergency rooms each year.
