Moped Collisions in Hawaii

Moiliili, HI - Moped Rider Seriously Injured in Collision on S. King St

Collisions between mopeds and bigger vehicles, like trucks, buses, or cars, frequently lead to serious and potentially deadly injuries. In many cases, the moped rider will endure the worse injury, due mainly to the fact that mopeds weigh much less than other motor vehicles and have absolutely no safety features. 

This is why you need the legal guidance of the personal injury attorneys at Leavitt, Yamane & Soldner. Our law firm represents victims experiencing injuries, stress, pain, and economic hardships caused by a moped accident.  

In addition to fighting for monetary recovery, our Hawaii catastrophic injury attorneys support our client’s physical and mental recovery as well. We will advocate for your right to proper medical care, working with your provider to keep them up-to-date on your claim and to calculate any anticipated medical expenses you may face after your claim is settled.

If you were injured in a moped crash caused by another person’s negligence, your path to recovery will probably be a long, expensive one. The healing process can be made even more trying if the at-fault driver or their insurance carrier attempts to deny fault or refuses to offer you the financial compensation you need and are entitled to.
