Hawaii Personal Injury Lawyers

Hawaii personal injury lawyers handle cases from Honolulu to Hilo and from Kauai to Maui and everywhere in-between. Hawaii personal injury lawyers and the clients they represent must follow the 51-percent modified comparative negligence rule. This rule states that the injured party cannot receive damages if they are 51-percent or more at fault.

The Hawaii State Bar Association (HSBA) was founded in 1899 and incorporated in 1985 as a non-profit trade organization under Section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code.

In November 1989, the Hawaii Supreme Court ordered the creation of a unified bar and designated it as the administrative entity of the unified bar. In so doing, the Supreme Court democratized the governance of the legal profession by conferring upon the HSBA the power and responsibility to aid the Court in regulating, maintaining, and improving the legal profession. Imbued with a new sense of direction and purpose, the newly constituted HSBA developed its very first mission statement and goals for the organization.

The mission of the HSBA is "To unite and inspire Hawaii's lawyers to promote justice, serve the public, and improve the legal profession."

The HSBA Board consists of twenty voting members (four officers, fifteen directors, and YLD President) as well as the standing committee chairs, ABA delegate, neighbor island representatives, and the president of the Hawaii State Trial Judges Association.

Hawaii Personal Injury Lawyers

The Hawaii personal injury lawyers need also be aware of the "modified" part of this comparative negligence rule. If their client is less than 51-percent at fault, but do have some percentage of responsibility for the injury, their damage award will be reduced by that percentage.

Another area in which Hawaii personal injury lawyers need to be aware is the state's modified joint and several liability rule. This rule assumes that more than one defendant is responsible for injury to the plaintiff to a certain degree or percentage.

Some have criticized Hawaii's joint and several liability rule because it penalizes the defendant with the deepest pockets most regardless of the percentage of their responsibility towards the plaintiff's injuries. Proponents of the rule say that it assures that the plaintiff and attorneys will be paid what is due.
