Personal Injury Cases Can Arise From A Variety Of Situations:
Hawaii law holds dog owners liable for any injuries or property damage caused by the dog.
Many dog bites are unintentional, and it is a case of the dog being scared or territorial. In some cases, owners are accused of siccing their dogs on people, like a Honolulu man did in April 2022.
Whether it’s an accident or purposefully done, personal injury lawyer Robert Marx takes dog bites seriously. He will use his knowledge of personal injury law to get you compensation to cover medical bills and emotional trauma.
If a product does not perform as intended, has design flaws or does not have the proper warning labels, the manufacturers and promoters of the product can be liable for negligence. As your personal injury lawyer, Mr. Marx can hold the creators and distributors of the defective product responsible for your injuries.
If you are injured on the job, you have to file a workers’ compensation claim. In some instances, workers may have to file a third-party claim if they were injured by someone who is not a co-worker.
For example, if a worker is driving to a job site and is rear-ended during the trip, that worker can file a third-party claim.
If you were injured on the job, injury lawyer Robert Marx can help you get workers’ compensation to cover any potential loss of income. He can also assist in personal injury claims to help you seek damages for medical bills and the cost of rehabilitation.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
A car or truck accident has the potential to cause traumatic brain injuries, loss of limbs, permanent scarring and physical deformities. After catastrophic vehicle accidents, some victims may require the amputation of a leg or arm.
Having Robert Marx on your personal injury claim will work to your advantage. With his 40-plus years in the legal field, he’s very familiar with the Big Island’s court system and judges in Hilo.

Let injury lawyer Robert Marx handle your wrongful death claim while you focus on yourself and your surviving loved ones.
Situations such as nursing home abuse and medical malpractice can lead to fatal injuries. Attorney Robert Marx can investigate nearly any death and work with clients if their friend, family member or significant other died because of a health professional’s negligence.

Legal Damages In A Personal Injury Case
As your personal injury attorney, Robert Marx will attempt to negotiate a fair settlement to address the hardships you’ve experienced. If a settlement cannot be reached, The Law Office of Robert Marx will not hesitate to seek damages in court.
Economic damages refer to tangible losses from an accident. This includes medical bills, property damage and lost wages while recuperating.
Noneconomic damages help address the injury’s impact on quality of life. This includes pain and suffering and emotional distress.
Punitive damages punish the negligent party for their actions. These kinds of damages are rarely awarded since they are not tied to economic or noneconomic losses. Your personal injury attorney can let you know if punitive damages may apply to your case.
