Damages in Car Accident Cases
Leavitt Yamane & Soldner: Serving Injured Hawaiians
While most people who are involved in car accidents emerge without serious
long-term injuries, some are less fortunate. Catastrophic auto accidents
can result in severe
spinal cord, neck, and
brain injuries or, even more tragically,
wrongful death. If you or a member of your family has been harmed in such a crash and
is looking for a car accident attorney in the Honolulu area, our experienced
lawyers of Leavitt Yamane & Soldner can help. We handle car accident
cases of all types and will fight for the full measure of damages to which
you are entitled.

What Sort of Compensation Can I Expect?
The exact compensation you can expect in your case depends on a number
of factors, including whether you shared some fault for the accident,
your out-of-pocket expenses, and the nature of your injuries. Only through
careful investigation, reconstruction, and analysis of your car accident
can an attorney at our Honolulu law firm estimate the damages to which
you are entitled.
In general, however, most car accident victims are able to recover compensation
for whatever losses and expenses resulted from their injuries, including:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
Lose a Loved One? Our Caring Honolulu Personal Injury Lawyers Can Assist You.
In rare cases of egregiously reckless negligence, punitive damages - compensation
awarded solely to punish the defendant - may also be awarded. If, regrettably,
you have lost a member of your family in a car accident, our Honolulu
personal injury attorneys will also be able to argue for compensation
for funeral-related costs, as well as for losses and expenses that can
reasonably be projected into the future. Commonly, wrongful death lawsuits
result in compensation for future lost income and benefits, loss of support,
loss of consortium, and mental anguish.
