Honolulu Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Honolulu Slip and Fall Accident Attorney

Many people are injured by slip and fall and trip and fall accidents every day in Honolulu County. These accidents can happen anywhere including, a private home or commercial establishment. Not all of these types of accidents are due to negligence of the property owner, but some are due to negligence on the part of the property owner. When the property owner is at fault, Hawaii’s laws are can protect fall victims who suffer personal injuries. In Hawaii, victims who suffer injuries due to someone else’s negligence can file a personal injury claim to recover damages from the person or entity at fault.

Each year more than 17, 000 Americans die from falls, and more than a million suffer as a direct result of these injuries. Chances are the insurance company will deny your claim, as almost all premise claims are dismissed on the misconception that the victim caused their own injuries. Hiring an experienced premise liability lawyer can make all the difference.

Some of the most common slip and fall accident injuries include:

  • Head injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Dislocated shoulders
  • Hip Injuries

These accidents may occur almost anywhere, including:

  • Parking lots and sidewalks – uneven pavement, damaged sidewalks, and slippery walkways can result in a dangerous situation, and property owners have a duty to maintain their lots and premises in a safe manner. A skilled attorney can assist if you’ve been injured on an Arizona sidewalk.
  • Steps – loose, uneven, or worn-out steps are another common hazard. Property owners need to maintain stairways that are in compliance with regulations and are completely safe for customers and guests, including installing handrails.
  • Stores – slippery floors and blocked walkways are also highly dangerous for customers and workers. Business owners have a duty to ensure they block off areas that have recently been cleaned to prevent people from accidentally slipping and falling. Business owners must also make sure there is adequate lighting and no hidden uneven grounds outside the premises, especially in parking lots.
  • Restaurants– in a food service setting, it is likely that food or liquids may fall onto the floor, creating a slippery surface. Restaurant owners have a duty to ensure their premises are safe and should clean up spills and dropped food as quickly as possible to keep hazards to a minimum.

It must first be determined that the property owner is liable for the injuries due to their negligence. Several factors will be looked at to determine this such as, how long the hazard was present, the dangerousness of the hazard, and if the property knew (or should have known) about the hazard. It will also be determined how much of the fault is on the victim. For instance, if you were running in an area that had signs warning you of wet floors, part of the responsibility will be placed on you. Also, it’s important to note that you must have a legal right to be on the property at the time of the accident. If you were trespassing, you will probably not have a case.

I am a client of the Attorney's For Freedom Law Firm's "Attorney On Retainer" program (as well as... their "Self-Protection plan"). I had an unfortunate explosion involving a firearm ("accidental discharge") that was a possible felony charge in Arizona. One call to Jonathan and it was all taken care of with no further action required on my part. They truly "just a phone call away"...read more
