Honolulu Dog Bite Lawyer | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Dog Bite Attorney in Honolulu, HI

Dogs make great pets, no wonder they are man’s best friend, and this is certainly true most of the time. But sometimes, dogs can cause injuries to people, and sometimes these injuries can be very serious. Millions of Americans are bitten by dogs every year in the United States. What’s worse is, children are often the victims in dog bite cases. These injuries can leave permeant scarring, disfigurement, emotional trauma, and sometimes they can be fatal.

No one ever expects to be bitten by a dog, but with nearly 77 million dogs living in U.S. households, your chances of being bitten by a dog are better than you might think. If you are a dog bite victim, you may be entitled to compensation from the dog’s owner or insurance company. You should consult with a Hawaii dog bite attorney to find out if you have a dog bite case.

Hawaii Revised Statute § 663-9, places the liability for injuries or damage caused by a dog on the dog’s owner or the person who harbors the dog. An owner would be strictly liable if they knew the dog has been vicious in the past. However, Hawaii Revised Statutes § 663-9.1 exempts injuries to trespassers, those who have abused the dog, or other cases in which the dog was provoked.

Hawaii’s dog bite law is similar to the “one-bite” rule. This rule requires that any person who owns a dog that has ever bitten or harmed someone in the past, must take reasonable steps to prevent the dog from hurting anyone else.

Dog Bite Costs
You may be entitled to damages that extend beyond the cost of your medical bills. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you could also receive damages for other expenses such as:

  • Lost work
  • Time off for doctors’ appointments
  • Emotional trauma
  • Future medical care
  • A live in assistant
  • Damaged property

But winning a personal injury suit can be difficult for dog bite victims. Which is why it is important that you consult with an experienced dog bit attorney.

If you or a child in your family has suffered an injury from a dog bite, contact The Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm – Honolulu or call us at 808-647-2423 and arrange a free case evaluation for your dog bite injury case.

My sister and her ex-husband have been involved in a long and tiresome custody battle for about 10... years. Her ex-husband continues to abuse the judicial system, repeatedly filing emergency custody orders, alleging a slew of lies and inflamed allegations about my sister. His latest attempt, involved lying about my then 18 year old son, by fabricating perjuries and serious lies about events that never happened when my son was 12 years old, claiming he did something against his then 6 year old daughter. This scum bag put an order of protection against my son, claiming that at some point, my son and his daughter had lived under the same roof and even filed a police report with made up accusations and conflicting dates and events that never took place. My husband immediately researched and found Attorneys for Freedom. The ratings given to the firm gave him the confidence to contact them, and we were immediately paired up with Ms. Emma Wincup. Emma took the time to listen to us and immediately told us the strategy we could use, if we decided to move forward and hire their services. Her paralegal, Faith Shelman, kept in contact with us on a regular basis about the case, setting up meetings and calls and providing updates throughout the process. After a closed police investigation, we were finally able to confront the scum bag on 3/15/2022, 6 months after the initial restraining order was filed. Emma was on time to court, very professional and courteous, but also determined and consistent inside the courtroom with her original strategy and defense. Emma presented the facts and conducted her cross-examination with great precision, presenting her closing argument without any hesitation pertaining to the facts of the law and why this order should be removed from my son's record. We are happy to report, the order was dismissed by the judge, and our son can begin to live his life without this lie hanging over him. Both my husband and I were not going to sit by and let this lie ruin our son's life and we are so glad that we contacted the firm. Prior to this, we'd never had any type of experience with lawyers and their services, and we are so glad we contacted the Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm and got paired up with Emma. Highly recommended, and while we hope to never need them again, we will not hesitate to hire their services, if the need ever arises.read more
