Experienced lawyers with recreational accidents

When you are on vacation, the last thing you want to happen is to be injured in an accident.  We are in Wailuku, Hawaii, which is located on Maui, one of the United States’ great tourist destinations.

So our Maui law firm at The Law Offices of Tateishi & Tanaka see an unusually large number of accidents from recreational activities.  The most common are:

  • Bicycle accidents. These accidents can be caused by:
    • Rider error
    • Motorist error
    • Product defects
    • Roadway defects

If a bicycle accident is caused by a roadway defect, this could mean the lawsuit would be against the city, county, or state government who maintains the roadway.  It is important to have a local lawyer.

  • Boating accidents. Injuries from boating accidents tend to be serious, if not fatal.  Boating accident causes include:
    • Boating under the influence
    • Reckless operation
    • Excessive speed
    • Negligent operation under certain weather conditions
    • Poor instruction to passengers
    • Defective product or defective part within the boat

Tateishi & Tanaka has successfully resolved recreational boating and bicycle cases.

Our lawyers are ready to represent you
