How Can a Lawyer Help?

We Handle Multiple Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents
As a "no-fault" state, car accident victims in Hawaii can receive benefits from their insurance for medical bills and other economic losses. However, these benefits have limits, and don't cover non-financial losses. If you suffered serious injury and the other driver was at fault, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim to get the compensation you deserve.
Car accident lawyer Robert Marx can review photos of the crash, medical records, and other evidence to build a compelling case of who was at fault and that you deserve fair compensation for your car accident claim.
Buses, vans, tractors, and some bigger trucks can qualify as commercial vehicles. As a tourist destination, it's common to encounter buses transporting visitors. Unfortunately, buses and other commercial vehicle drivers can cause accidents, leaving you with potentially serious personal injuries to recover from.
In his 40-plus years as an attorney, Robert Marx has dealt with a wide range of accidents involving larger vehicles. He can represent you if you were involved in a commercial vehicle accident.
Motorcycles and Scooters
Motorcycles and scooters offer less protection than other motor vehicles that fully encase drivers and passengers. Riders who don't wear a helmet and other protective gear have a higher risk of sustaining traumatic brain injuries, amputations, and other life-changing injuries than most motor vehicle drivers.
Our personal injury lawyer will advocate for compensation to cover medical bills, physical therapy, and other health needs if you've been in a motorcycle or scooter crash.
Like motorcycle and scooter accidents, pedestrians and bicyclists are far less protected than drivers. Even being hit by a low-speed vehicle can cause long-term damage. As a prime outdoor destination, drivers on the Big Island need to keep a careful eye out for pedestrian visitors.
Our car accident attorney can check to see if the driver's negligence caused the car accident, and file a claim on your behalf.
You Can Still Recover Damages
If Your Auto Accident Was Partly Your Fault
Hawaii has a modified comparative negligence clause, which allows drivers who were partially at fault for a crash to pursue compensation if the other driver carried a greater responsibility for the accident. The damages you receive will be reduced based on your share of responsibility for the accident.
For example, if you were responsible for 20% of a three-car crash and the other drivers were each 40% responsible for the crash, you can still seek compensation for damages. However, any compensation will be reduced by 20% for your share of negligence.
If You've Experienced a Traumatic Injury, Call Us
Vehicle accidents can leave you with an amputated leg or arm, loss of bodily function, permanent scarring, and physical deformities.
But not all traumatic injuries leave a visible mark. A blow to the head during a car accident can result in traumatic brain injury. Victims of these types of injuries can experience memory loss, speech issues, seizures, and other debilitating health issues.
Our law office has represented numerous traumatic injury victims to secure the compensation they deserve. If you've suffered a traumatic injury as the result of your motor vehicle accident, it is imperative that you attend all medical appointments and keep a record of your injuries. This will help us to create a strong injury claim case on your behalf.
