A. Slip and Falls: This is type of lawsuit sometimes called Premises Liability, or commonly called a Slip and Fall. Generally, if you fall and get hurt, you are not automatically entitled to sue and recover damages. THERE HAS TO HAVE BEEN SOME NEGLIGENCE BY THE DEFENDANT. Over the years, I have seen people slip on slick floors (maybe the wax caused it, or it was wet), I have seen people trip in potholes or places in the floors or stairs that were defective (perhaps the owner failed to inspect and maintain the property), and in Hawaii especially the footing is precarious, and lots of hotels and property owners simply don't design the area well, or they fail to keep it maintained, and someone gets hurt. If you fell because you weren't looking where you were going, or your clumsy, you cannot sue. However, I always listen to the facts from a new client, and I ask questions about the surface where they fell, the lighting, was there sand or water on the floor; should there have been a handrail in a pool for instance, or perhaps there is some other type of dangerous condition. Call me, and I'll discuss it with you.
B. TOURISM INJURIES: If you're reading this section, you probably came to Maui on vacation and you got injured. Not only is your vacation ruined, but you have to get home, and flying injured is no simply trick. Then, what do you do about a lawsuit if you live thousands fo miles away. We can help with all these concerns. I have had clients call me while they are still on the island, come into my office, and I have agreed to represent them. I can help. Also, when you go home, the odds are that you will have your own doctors there, and that may actually be the best for you and your case. With the advent of computers, skype, and instant messaging, thousands of miles are irrelevant. In fact, many courts in Hawaii allow the witness or plaintiff to appear via video conferencing. The long distances have been a problem for years, and the court's are sympathetic. Another reason you may want to consider hiring me is that I spent many years in Texas, centrally located, and I have a bevy of ready experts in the Dallas area if we need them for your case. I move fast, and I work hard, and I know how to get things done here in Hawaii or in Texas (or where ever you may live). Call me as soon as you can. Early involvement will help your case.

Slip and fall cases can only be filed if the property owner was negligent in some way. If you were a tourist at the time of your injury, you are an "invitee" and the hotel owes you a specific duty to keep you safe. Call now and I'll explain.
