Honolulu Slip & Fall Accident Attorney

Dedicated Honolulu Lawyers Representing Victims of Slip & Fall Accidents

Not All Honolulu Personal Injury Attorneys Are Created Equal!

It is common to see personal injury law firms turning down slip, trip, and fall accidents cases. We do not! Many lawyers will send these cases to us because they lack the experience to handle them. Our law firm has helped many individuals who have suffered from an injury. You can count on a Honolulu slip & fall lawyer.

People think we live in a safe place, but we don’t. When hotels, stores, businesses, government agencies, residential and building owners don’t provide safe sidewalks, walkways, and stairs for their guests, shoppers, and tenants, people will fall and injuries will happen.

Property Owners and Insurance Companies Do Not Have Your Best Interests In Mind

National and local safety standards exist to prevent hazardous conditions from existing, but some businesses will choose to place profits over safety. Our primary mission as Honolulu personal injury attorneys is to help those injured in slip, trip, and fall cases get compensated for their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.  Our second mission is to get the irresponsible property owner to correct dangerous conditions and prevent someone else from getting injured in the future. Only by filing a claim for you, can we get their attention and make our community safer for everyone.
