What Qualifies as a Serious Injury in Maui?

The best way to determine if your injury qualifies as serious is to schedule a consultation with a serious injury attorney in the Maui area. A member of our team will review your case and help you better understand whether your injuries are serious or catastrophic.

In general, though an injury is serious if it has a significant impact on your quality of life. Often, this impact is permanent, although there are instances where injuries may be considered serious even if the consequences of said injuries are only temporary.

Brain injuries and spinal cord injuries often qualify as serious. Spinal cord injuries can result in paralysis, while brain injuries can result in such difficulties as reduced cognitive functioning, memory problems, emotional regulation issues, and much more.

Proving Negligence in a Maui Serious Injury Case

To recover compensation after sustaining a serious injury, you must typically prove that your injury resulted from the negligence of another party. This involves proving that:

  • Given the circumstances, the party owed you a certain degree of care
  • The party was negligent in a manner that involved breaching the duty of care
  • You were injured as a result of said breach of duty
  • Your injuries left you with damages for which you may be compensated

The specific means in which you may prove negligence will vary depending upon the nature of your case. It is often necessary to conduct an investigation to prove that another party was negligent in a manner that resulted in you being injured.

You may not have the resources necessary to conduct such an investigation on your own. Luckily, you don’t have to. Our Maui serious injury attorneys can conduct an investigation on your behalf.

How a Maui Serious Injury Attorney Helps

Investigating your case is just one way in which a Maui serious injury attorney can help you recover the compensation for which you may be eligible. A Maui lawyer can also negotiate with the insurance companies for an appropriate settlement.

Pursuing compensation in these circumstances usually involves filing an insurance claim or lawsuit. Unfortunately, insurance companies are profit-driven businesses, and thus are not inclined to offer victims the full amount of compensation they may deserve given the extent and severity of their injuries.

If you attempt to recover compensation on your own, an insurer will likely take advantage of your lack of experience in these matters, convincing you to settle for less than your claim may be worth.

That does not need to happen. If you have representation from a qualified Maui serious injury attorney, you will have someone on your side who is prepared to reject unreasonably low settlement offers from the insurance company. Having representation from a lawyer throughout this process also gives you more freedom and time to focus on your recovery.
