Why need an Injury Lawyer?
Why Do I Need an Injury Lawyer?
When you have been injured in an accident in Hawaii, you may ask yourself: “why do I need an injury lawyer?” This is a good question. You may wonder whether you can do the Hawaii insurance claim on your own, without any help.
You may wonder if it will be so expensive to hire a Hawaii injury lawyer that you are better off trying to do it on your own. You may feel overwhelmed and feel like it’s not even worth the stress to pursue a claim. Again, these are all good and fair questions when you have been in a car accident in Hawaii.
First of all, people who are injured in car accidents in Honolulu should know that the process for making a claim for your injuries can be very complicated and confusing. Unfortunately, the Hawaii insurance companies like it that way.
The more confusing and complicated it is to make a claim, the more likely that people will just give up. But, this is not right. If you have been injured on Oahu due to someone else’s negligence, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries. You deserve money for your lost wages, pain, and suffering, and any other out of pocket expenses.
The only sure way to make sure you get the money you deserve is to hire a Honolulu injury lawyer who is experienced and knowledgeable in Hawaii auto accident injury claims. This is the only sure way that you will know that your case will be handled properly so that you receive maximum compensation for your injuries.
More often than not, even after paying the attorney fees, you will end up with much more money for your injuries than you would have received if you hadn’t hired an attorney. Plus, a major benefit of having an attorney is that you do not have to worry and stress over everything.
You will know that your Hawaii personal injury attorney is taking care of everything. All you will have to worry about is getting the treatment that you need to recover from your injuries.
Should I Go to Court in Hawaii?
As Hawaii Personal Injury Lawyers we are often asked by people if they should take their injury case to court. Unfortunately, the answer isn’t always a simple one. When considering whether to take your case to Hawaii court you have to consider many factors such as the potential costs, the damages involved, and the time and stress involved.
Many people do not realize how expensive it is to go to court in Hawaii. There are filing fees, service fees, deposition expenses, expert fees, and many other expenses. In light of the costs involved in going to court, you have to consider the value of your injuries. The higher the value of your injuries, the more it makes sense to go to court. The lower the value of your injuries, the less sense it makes to go to court and incur many expenses.
Also, many people do not understand how stressful and time consuming it is to go to court in Hawaii. One of the first things that Hawaii defense attorneys need to do is to take your deposition. This is their opportunity to ask you many questions about yourself and about the accident and your injuries. Depositions vary in time, but they usually take at least half a day, and sometimes they take a whole day or more.
In Hawaii, nearly all injury cases must go through the Hawaii Court Annexed Arbitration Program before proceeding to a trial. This Hawaii CAAP program also takes about a day of your time in order for both sides of the case to present their arguments and testimony to an Arbitrator.
These are just a few factors to consider when deciding whether to proceed with litigation in Honolulu, Hawaii.
