The degree to which an injury impacts your day-to-day life will depend on how severe the injury is. A minor injury might be nothing more than a small inconvenience.

Unfortunately, some injuries can lead to more permanent changes in a victim’s quality of life. It’s also possible to sustain such injuries through no fault of one’s own. Additionally, workplace accidents may have the potential to cause injuries that have long-lasting consequences.

If you’ve sustained this type of harm, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills and related losses. Contact a Honolulu serious injury attorney at Kurzban, Kurzban, Tetzeli, and Pratt for more information about your legal options.

Types of Honolulu Serious Injury Cases We Handle

Serious injury cases come in a variety of forms. The types of cases we specialize in include the following

  • Medical malpractice: We trust physicians and other medical professionals to keep us healthy and prevent us from being harmed. Sometimes, they betray our trust. If you have been seriously injured as a result of a medical professional’s negligence, we can help you build a strong case demonstrating why you deserve to be compensated for your losses.
  • Paralysis: Various types of accidents, from workplace accidents to surgical errors, can result in paralysis. Being the victim of such an accident will have a profound impact on your long-term quality of life.
  • Wrongful death: Losing a loved one unexpectedly is always a painful experience. It can be even more challenging to cope with such a loss if your loved one would still be alive were it not for the negligence of another party. Although no one can fully make up for such a devastating loss, we can help you pursue compensation for funeral expenses, loss of your loved one’s income, loss of their companionship, and more.

What Qualifies as a Serious Injury in Honolulu?

The severity of the injuries someone might sustain as a result of an accident, medical negligence, or other such circumstances can vary greatly. Some injuries merely require basic medical treatment and tend to fully heal in a relatively short period of time.

Other injuries can result in permanent consequences. Examples may include (but are not necessarily limited to):

  • Preventing someone from returning to work
  • Limiting a victim’s ability to tend to their daily needs
  • Requiring that a victim receive potentially lifelong medical care
  • Leaving a victim with lasting pain
  • Preventing a victim from participating in activities they once found enjoyable
  • Depriving a victim of the ability to fill the same roles in the lives of family, friends, and colleagues they may have filled in the past

It’s not always clear whether an injury a person has sustained qualifies as serious. If you’re not sure whether your injuries should be considered serious, discuss your case with the experts at our Honolulu serious injury law firm.
