Bicycle Accidents

The number of vehicles that share Hawaii’s roadways with bicyclists ensure that motor vehicle/bicycle accidents are a fact of modern life.

If you have been injured, you need an attorney who has experience in bicycle accident cases. Mr. Jacobs understands the complex laws that apply to these cases in Hawaii, and he can help you maximize your chances of winning the compensation you deserve.

Dog Attacks

The severity of dog bite injuries depends on many factors, including type of breed, size of the victim, duration of the attack and how quickly the victim received medical care.

If you have been injured, you need an attorney who has experience in dog attack cases.

Medical Negligence/Malpractice

Despite the years of training that doctors and other medical professionals receive, mistakes still happen. In medical negligence/malpractice cases, the “acceptable standard of care” question is one that must be established very early in the case. The standard of care is understood to be the generally accepted practices and procedures used by other medical professionals in the same geographic area when treating patients suffering the same disease or disorder under the same or similar circumstances.

Too many drivers do not pay proper attention and fail to look out for motorcycles/mopeds, which have as much right to the road as four-wheeled vehicles. Injuries that result from motorcycle/moped accidents are often severe. If you have been injured, you need an attorney who has experience in motorcycle/moped accident cases. Mr. Jacobs understands the complex laws that apply to these cases in Hawaii, and he can help you maximize your chances of winning the compensation you deserve.

Pedestrian Accidents

Nowadays, cell phones, GPS and other distractions can claim a driver’s attention, making pedestrians vulnerable. Most pedestrians are killed in urban areas, as they try to cross streets. Elderly pedestrians are particularly vulnerable. Sidewalks, crosswalks, and medians are common sites for pedestrian/vehicle collisions. Injuries that result from pedestrian accidents are often severe.

Premises Liability (Slips/Trips/Falls)

A building or landowner/occupier has a legal responsibility to maintain safe conditions on a property. When the owner/occupier does not do so, and a serious injury happens, the victim can seek compensation for medical expenses, financial losses and pain and suffering. If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of a property owner, it is critical to get an experienced attorney on the case, investigating the facts immediately, before key evidence is lost.

Product Liability

When a company manufactures a product with the intent of selling it to the public for a profit, it has a duty to ensure that the product it is placing into the marketplace is safe and not unreasonably dangerous. Problems with products can include how the product or device was manufactured, designed and tested, or a failure to give proper warnings or notice of dangers associated with use of the product. As consumers, we assume that the products we see on store shelves and buy for our families are safe. Unfortunately, that is not always the case and oftentimes the product manufacturers care more about maximizing profits and protecting their image than the safety and welfare of the public.

Wrongful Death

The loss of a loved one is a life-altering event. It is made even worse if the surviving family members feel that the death could have been prevented. Not only is the family dealing with the emotional grief of such a loss but, if the deceased was a parent or provider, they may also be faced with a real and immediate financial crisis. During this time of crisis, the last thing the survivors may be thinking about is hiring a lawyer. However, it is crucial to get an experienced attorney on the case, investigating the facts immediately, before key evidence is lost.
