Maui, Kauai, Big Island and Outer Island Claim Information
Over the years Car Accident Lawyer Maui Kauai - William H. Lawson
has vigorously and competently represented
clients in courts on Maui, Kauai, the Big Island and other outer island courts, including
clients from Lahaina, Kahalui, Wailuku, Kona, Hilo, Lihue, Kapa'a and other towns, while

our clients by phone, by email and by regular mail.
order to maintain prompt contact- every
effort is made to respond to communications the day
that they occur. For our Outer Island clients with
Maui, Kauai or Big Island claims - we have
frequently advanced the costs of travel for depositions and
client conferences here in Honolulu. Frequently, an attorney
will also visit you on your home island to travel with you
to the accident scene and/or to see and record the impact of the
injuries on your life.
Handling a Maui, Kauai, or other Outer Island injury claim from a main office in Honolulu
does not pose any significant challenges to a timely and successful
prosecution of the claim. Regardless of where the accident
occurs, photos, videos and witness statementswill be gathered by a
local investigator familiar with the area and the tendencies
of the people in that area. We may also hire
expert witness to workup the case.
Although there are competent expert witnesses in some fields on the
outer islands, for the most part the most experienced and qualified
experts are located on the island of Oahu.
Once the proper workup has been done, efforts to settle
the claim with the applicable insurance companies often require
high level negotiations with management of the insurer.
An adjuster on Maui, Kauai or the Big Island
generally does not have management authority to commit the insurer
to a reasonable value on most settlements. Hence, the real
negotiations on most insurance settlements take
place in Honolulu. In short, it is
often an advantage to have a Honolulu attorney when settlement
negotiations are taking place.

personal injury arbitrations and trials on Maui, Kauai and Hawaii.
