Hawaii Medical Malpractice Lawyers Helping You And Your Family After Medical Negligence

You trust your doctor, clinic or hospital to protect you and your quality of life. Unfortunately, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals make errors that can harm your health and even cause fatal complications. A recent study estimates that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States – responsible for more than 250,000 deaths. Of the medical malpractice cases that go to trial, the injured patients lose approximately 80-90% of jury trials, and win only 50% of cases with strong evidence of negligence.

How We Hold Negligent Parties Accountable For Their Errors

Despite the low results of winning cases, our firm has a much higher success rate representing clients who have been injured due to medical negligence. We are committed to helping victims of medical negligence at Trecker Fritz & Williams and take on a smaller number of cases so that we can put all our resources towards winning for you. Our lawyers have successfully represented individuals and families in Honolulu, Kauai and throughout Hawaii in medical malpractice claims. We will fight to protect your rights and work hard to find a creative solution to help you get your life back on track.

Our goal is to help you receive fair compensation and to make sure the person or hospital liable for your injuries takes responsibility for their errors.

Was Your Medical Mistake Preventable?

Medical mistakes are often preventable. They are often attributed to carelessness, lack of training and overall negligence. Our lawyers successfully represent victims and families harmed by all types of medical negligence in Hawaii, including:

  • Birth injuries, including cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy
  • Emergency room failures
  • Failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, including cancer
  • Surgical errors
  • Medication errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Infections, including bacterial meningitis
  • Defective medical devices
  • Lack of informed consent

Victims who survive may be left with a lifelong disability, chronic pain, costly medical bills and a loss of earning potential. Our lawyers have decades of experience protecting patients and their families. We will stand by your side and guide you through this process to help you get the best outcome in your case.

We have the resources available to enlist the efforts of medical experts in Hawaii and on the mainland who will analyze the evidence in your case and help us determine who was at fault for your medical mistake and why it occurred.

Who Can File A Medical Malpractice Lawsuit In Hawaii?

We represent full-time residents, part-time residents, visitors, international tourists and those serving in the military and their families. Do not let your location status stop you from finding out more about your malpractice case. We have experience handling complex medical malpractice claims.

Hawaii’s Statute Of Limitations For Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

In Hawaii, most, but not all, medical malpractice cases have a two-year statute of limitations. Due to this time frame, it is imperative to discuss your case with our lawyers right away. We offer free, confidential meetings to learn about what happened and if you have a claim. However, each statute of limitations is different. You should discuss the statute of limitations in your case with a lawyer to ensure you have the correct date.
