Auto, Bicycle, Motorcycle and Pedestrian Accidents
Car, bicycle, motorcycle and pedestrian accidents can cause serious injuries, but obtaining compensation from negligent drivers can be difficult under Hawaii auto accident law. Hawaii’s Personal Injury Protection (previously known as “no fault”) automobile insurance law is designed to provide injury victims with at least $10,000.00 in medical and rehabilitative treatment coverage, and optional wage loss and survivors’ loss benefits, but these types of compensation are simply inadequate to meet the needs of many injury victims. Insurance companies may also deny an injured victim’s rights to medical benefits. Louis P. Mendonca can help you navigate the system and get the medical treatment you need and the compensation you deserve, even if it requires standing up to the insurance companies and applying the full force of Hawaii personal injury law.

Slips and Falls/Premises Liability
Slips and falls can occur anywhere, including hotels, grocery stores, department stores and restaurants, or on city sidewalks and streets. In many cases, the conditions which caused the fall are only temporary, adding to the difficulty of proving the facts of the case. Louis P. Mendonca understands that significant injuries that can occur from such a fall, as well as the specific factual circumstances and legal issues that must be proven and addressed to ensure a successful recovery.
Perhaps the most tragic event of all is when the negligence or wrongful act of another results in the death of a family member. Apart from the grief and pain of such a loss, the death of a loved one often brings severe economic disruption and financial hardship to the surviving family members. Hawaii wrongful death law allows the personal representative of the estate or immediate family member to bring suit on behalf of the surviving beneficiaries, holding the responsible parties accountable for their actions while obtaining much-needed compensation for the losses suffered by the surviving beneficiaries.
