Waimanalo, HI - Two-Vehicle Crash With Injuries on Kalaniana’ole Hwy

Whether you are a Big Island native or a tourist who is enjoying a sunny vacation, a car crash can create many unpleasant and unwelcome hardships in your life. Your injuries could be extensive and demand a lengthy and expensive hospital stay, physical rehabilitation, and an extended recovery period. As you deal with these difficulties, a protracted legal claim may seem like the last thing you need on your plate.

Add to this unbidden calls from insurance adjusters offering them ridiculously small settlements and, unsurprisingly, many victims consent to a lowball offer just to put an end to the nightmarish process.  

It is not unusual for an injured victim to have no idea of the first step in bringing a personal injury claim. They are bombarded with bills and appointments during their recovery, as well as being in an incredible amount of pain. They are also forced to take time off of work, adding to the already unimaginable amount of stress they are under trying to stay ahead of financial ruin. 

Rest assured, the insurance company is fully aware of what it’s doing. This is just one of the reasons it is so important that you speak with a reputable attorney as soon as possible. We know the ploys and underhanded tactics they will use to pay out as little as possible. It is our mission to ensure that you do not walk away from the proverbial table with less than you deserve.  

Don’t be a victim again. Agreeing to the first settlement you are offered is almost always a huge mistake. It is common practice for insurance companies to proffer the smallest settlement they can, and, given that victims need money for medical expenses right away, even the most insulting of offers can seem tempting.
