Additional Information about Explosion, Fire and Burn Accident claims in Hawaii
Investigation of an explosion, fire or burn accident claim can be very important to the outcome of the claims. A timely investigation and documentation of the available evidence related to the case is often critical. Photos and videos of relevant conditions, the scene, the equipment involved, the activities which were being carried on in the area of the accident, the damages to the area where the injuries and damages were sustained, and the injuries and damages themselves will often prove invaluable in proving up an accident claim. Whether the claim is pre-suit and the presentation is being made to a claims adjuster and an insurance company, or the case has been filed and the proof must be made to a judge or a jury – the availability and quality of the evidence collected will often be key. Photographic or video documentation of the accident and the injuries should be done as soon as possible. Here at Accident Lawyer Hawaii we are happy to provide a considerable amount of this type of assistance for cases on which we have been retained.
Generally, cases involving burns, and a fire, chemical or explosion accident, include a number of different legal doctrines such as: negligence, product liability, premises liability, proximate causation and other issues.

Selecting the correct forum in which to pursue this type of claim can be very important.
