Complexities of Tourist Injury Cases
In cases of injury to an out-of-state visitor, many problems can arise
in the interplay between Hawaiian insurance companies, insurance adjusters,
and doctors and their out-of-state counterparts. In such multi-state cases,
logistical issues and conflicting state laws can further complicate matters
Types of Tourist Injury Accidents
With Hawaii's array of leisure activities, visitors are more vulnerable
to a wide range of injuries. Certain tourist injuries involve especially
complicated legalities that necessitate exceptional legal counsel. Our
attorneys are skilled at litigating cases of Hawaii tourist injury caused
by motor vehicle accidents and more.
Hawaii has unique laws governing
auto accidents. Since it is a modified no-fault state, accident victims aren't automatically
entitled to bring a claim against a negligent driver. Furthermore, tourists
are commonly impacted by Hawaii's distinctive rules and regulations
regarding insurance coverage in rental car situations.
In auto accident cases, the following parties are involved in litigation:
- The accident victim's insurance company
- The at-fault driver
- The car rental company
- The victim's doctor are all involved in litigation
Since accident victims must deal with the complex interactions between
these entities, enlisting legal counsel is essential to successful litigation.
Sorting Out Interstate Insurance Legalities
Hawaii laws dictating insurance coverage and reimbursement for out-of-state
doctors often conflict with victims' home-state laws, since Hawaii's
no-fault rules limit reimbursement for out-of-state doctors. In such cases,
expert legal counsel is needed to untangle Hawaii laws. Our Honolulu-based
tourist injury lawyers at Leavitt Yamane & Soldner have the experience
and expertise to do just that. We will advise you about what to do, how
to receive medical care, and who to bill in your home state for your medical
Slip & Fall Accidents
Tourists unfamiliar with their surroundings are especially vulnerable to
slip-and-fall injures due to inadequate public handrail supports and other
environmental hazards. Slip-and-fall accidents are especially hazardous
for children and the elderly, and can cause broken bones and even traumatic
brain injury. Our lawyers are skilled at navigating the inter-state legalities of personal
injury due to such accidents.

airplane, helicopter, and boat transport. Many tourist injuries during
