Motor Vehicle Accidents Attorney
Motor vehicle accidents often cause extensive physical harm, emotional suffering and more.
Choosing the right motor vehicle accident attorneys is crucial when you are seeking the compensation you deserve.
Since 1980, the award-winning The Law Office of Robert Marx has successfully fought for victims in Hilo, Hawaii, and across the Big Island.
How Can Our Car Accident Lawyers Help?
Hawaii is a “no-fault” state, meaning the negligent party’s insurance company is responsible for compensating physical injuries up to a certain limit. While this sounds straightforward, insurance companies often seek to deny your injuries and minimize compensation.
Our law firm fights for Hilo clients by seeking maximum compensation from insurance companies and filing lawsuits against drivers themselves for property damages and serious injuries. Our personal injury attorneys represent car accident victims by:
Reviewing The Car Accident
We promptly collect and preserve crucial evidence such as police reports, photos of the accident scene, witness statements, medical records and driving records. Our decades of practice give us a deep understanding of what evidence we need and how to obtain it.
Designing Your Case
Explaining what exactly occurred in a car accident can be very complex. Our Hilo personal injury attorneys have developed an extensive network of local professionals that we count on to analyze car accidents. Their work helps our lawyers persuade insurance companies and the courts that our clients deserve the most compensation possible.
Fighting Insurance Companies
Our lawyers have a deep familiarity with insurance company tactics and how to combat them. Robert Marx has protected Hawaii’s rights since 1980 and knows when a car accident claim is being undervalued. When the compensation available within the personal injury protection benefits limit is not sufficient, we file and fight the necessary lawsuits.
Hawaii is a comparative negligence state. This means you can receive damages for an accident even if you were partially responsible, as long as the other party was responsible for more than 50% of the accident.
Your award will be lowered if you are deemed in any way at fault against the other driver. For instance, if the court finds you 20% at fault against the other driver, your award will be lowered by 20%. Robert Marx and Hannah McKee are lawyers who pride themselves on protecting their clients from false blame for vehicular accidents.
Our car accident lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means our Big Island clients don’t have to pay us a cent unless we win their case.

We Handle All Kinds Of Motor Vehicle Accidents
Our car accident attorneys help clients in Hilo and across the Big Island file car accident claims with insurance companies, bring a case to court if necessary, and secure fair compensation for the following accidents:
Standard auto accidents are car accidents between two or more motor vehicles involved in a collision. It is important to seek medical attention and speak to our attorney, even if your harm seems minor, since many auto accident injuries are slow to develop.
Truck (Big Rig) Accidents
While crashes with standard pickup trucks are considered auto accidents, 18-wheelers, dump trucks and cement trucks are classified as truck accidents. Semis and other large motor vehicles can cause devastating injuries that cannot be covered by insurance company limits. Our attorneys can file the personal injury lawsuits necessary to achieve proper compensation.
Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Commercial vehicles are automobiles that transport people or products for a business. These vehicles include buses, tractors-trailers and delivery vehicles. Our law firm knows how to prove that commercial vehicle drivers and their employers neglected critical laws, thereby causing your injury.
Motorcyclists face a greater risk of experiencing a serious and even fatal crash than traditional drivers. They are also often stigmatized and blamed for their accidents. Our law firm stands up to unfair blame and fights for Hawaii motorcyclists’ rights.
Similar to motorcyclists, pedestrians are often blamed for the grave injuries they suffer during auto accidents. We know how to prove that an injured pedestrian was a victim and not the cause of a motor vehicle accident.
We Fight for Victims With Serious Injuries Sustained During Motor Vehicle Accidents
Attorney Marx was lead counsel in a record-setting auto accident verdict of $5,630,000. Clients from all over the Big Island come to our attorney because they trust he can successfully fight for maximum compensation following devastating injuries like:
Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury is known to cause enormous, long-lasting harm that may not be obvious to the untrained eye. Our team has an extensive track record of proving traumatic brain injuries in court.
Detrimental Injuries And Amputations
Motor vehicle accidents can lead to loss of bodily function, loss of limbs, permanent scarring and physical deformities. We know how to properly value these losses and seek the right restitution.
Money can never make up for the tragic death of a loved one. But our accident attorneys can handle a wrongful death lawsuit to help you secure the compensation you need to move forward.
Many Hilo Residents Suffer From Tragic Car Accidents
The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) reports 94 traffic-related deaths on Hawaii roads in 2021.
