This video features Wayne D. Parsons, a Medical Malpractice attorney based in Hawaii.
What should you do if you're a tourist in Hawaii and you're injured in an accident? That's what we ask Hawaii attorney Wayne Parsons for this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.
Obviously, you're on vacation, you're not home, you're not around your own doctors and hospitals and things like that. A lot of people just say, Oh, I'm gonna wait till I get back home to have a doctor look at this if it's relatively minor, but if it's relatively major, they are here and if they need surgeries, there are gonna be all sorts of issues that they have involving insurance. Can they fly back home? Can they go back home? What's gonna happen? What's your support mechanism here? And so I think it makes perfect sense to contact a lawyer, a personal injury lawyer, who does the type of case, handles this type of case that they have, whether it's in a motor vehicle or they were injured on a tour, they were in the ocean on a boat or snorkeling, but whatever it is, a lawyer will evaluate your case for nothing, we'll do it to find out if there's a case, and in the process of that we'll help them with their insurance and help them connect with their family and whatever other support mechanisms they need.
