Q: How long do I have to file a claim or lawsuit in my Honolulu accident case?
Every state has its own time requirement on when a claim can be settled or filed in court. This length of time is known as the statute of limitations.
In Hawaii, the statute of limitations for most injury claims is two years from the date of the injury or loss.
You will want to consult with an experienced Hawaii personal injury attorney to make sure you know when the statute of limitations expires in your case, since there are some exceptions.
It is important to obtain legal help promptly and not delay if you have suffered injuries in a car wreck. At Trecker & Fritz, we invest a substantial amount of time before the statute of limitations expires to prepare for and investigate a case. So, it goes without saying that the more time before the statute of limitations expires that you contact us, the better.
