Recent Personal Injury and Car Accident News and Cases related to Hawaii


On June 29, 2015, the Hawaii Supreme Court rendered its decision in the case of St. Paul Fire and Marine Ins. Co. v. Liberty Mutual Insurance, Hi. Sup. Ct. Case No SCCQ-14-0000727 (June 29, 2015). This case arose out of a wrongful death personal injury case handled by this office which resulted in a $4.1 million verdict in favor of our clients - even though Liberty Mutual, the primary liability insurer, never offered anything even close to its policy limits of $1 million. St. Paul - who had to pay our clients everything recovered in excess of the initial $1 million - claimed that Liberty Mutual committed bad faith towards it by failing to settle within its $1 million policy limits. The Hawaii Supreme Court agreed and found that an excess insurer has claims for bad faith against a primary insurer.

Deadlines to File Explosion, Demolition & Blasting Accident Claims

The deadline for most explosion, demolition & blasting accident claims in Hawaii is two (2) years from the date of the injury. Hawaii Personal Injury Attorney - Deadlines It should be noted, however, that there are exceptions to this rule- for example, claims against the City and County of Honolulu and the various other Counties must be filed with the appropriate agency within six (6) months of the date of the accident. In many explosion accident cases, the claim deadlines of other jurisdictions come into play and choice of law rules may shorten the deadlines to one year or another length of time. Whatever the deadlines may be, you must file your claims in court prior to the expiration of such deadlines, or your claims may be lost—regardless of their merit. To be wise it is recommended that you immediately contact an attorney after an explosion, demolition & blasting accident giving rise to injuries occurs. If you wish to do so now, please do not hesitate to contact us here at Hawaii Personal Injury Attorney right now for a free evaluation of your case.


Explosion, Demolition & Blasting Accidents in Hawaii

Explosion, demolition & blasting accidents are very dangerous. Explosion, demolition & blasting accidents are likely to cause death and serious injury. Thus, there are special laws that regulate and precautions that are necessary whenever a person or business is dealing with explosive materials.

Types of explosion, demolition & blasting accidents which have been known to occur- and which may occur again- include, but are not limited to:

  • Accidents during the trucking, air freight or other delivery of explosive materials
  • Unexploded ordnance accidents
    (Hawaii still has unexploded ordnance from WWII and training exercises)
  • Demolition and blasting cap accidents, esp. during sitework and excavation
  • Accidents involving the sale or storage of petroleum products and other explosive materials
  • Automobile gas tank design defects
  • Battery explosions
  • Fireworks accidents, esp around New Year's and the 4th of July
  • Pressurized consumer products, especially when heated in Hawaii's sun
  • Unguarded and unsafely stored or abandoned explosive materials

If an explosion accident injury occurs as a result of the negligence or fault of someone other than the employer of the victim, there probably will be a valid claim against the actual party at fault. If you or someone you love were seriously injured in an explosion accident, you may want to consult with an attorney to assist you with your situation.
