Q: What types of compensation (damages) can I receive if I’m hurt in a Honolulu car wreck?
Generally speaking, most Hawaii auto accident victims will be able to recover compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost wages and earning capacity, vehicular repair, and pain and suffering. On rare occasions, punitive damages may be awarded—these are damages awarded solely to punish the at-fault party.
We can only arrive at a reasonable estimate of compensation after a thorough investigation and reconstruction of your accident. Other variables may impact your total compensation as well—for instance, if you are found partially at fault, it will reduce your compensation.
If you are injured in a Honolulu auto accident, contact an auto accident attorney to protect your rights.
