The Honolulu car accident attorneys at Shim & Chang, Attorneys at Law have represented hundreds of auto accident victims in Hawaii over decades of practice. We have the experience and resources to handle even the most serious and challenging auto accident cases, often taking on cases that demand extensive preparation, research, and creativity to achieve a fair recovery. We cut no corners when investigating and building a claim for compensation. We often consult experts to reconstruct the accident, biomechanics to tell us if there are any defects in the vehicle, and highway traffic engineers to search for hazardous conditions in the road or roadside. Our Honolulu car accident lawyer takes pride in thoroughness and results, we explore every avenue of recovery available to our clients.
In Hawaii, you have the legal right to sue a negligent driver if you have suffered a severe and permanent injury, someone lost their life, or the medical bills paid by the no-fault insurance carrier total $5,000 or more. Just suffering an injury does not entitle you to compensation. You need to prove that the other driver was negligent, careless, or acted irresponsibly and that you were not more at fault than the other driver. Proving your case requires a skilled, knowledgeable, and experienced attorney. We, at Shim & Chang, have been that attorney for hundreds of clients over the years.
Unfortunately, some accidents involve irresponsible or intoxicated drivers who have either no insurance or not enough to fully compensate you for your injuries and losses. As a result, it takes an experienced attorney, one who is familiar with Hawaii’s auto insurance laws, to look for other sources of coverage such as uninsured motorist coverage (when injured by a driver with no insurance) or underinsurance motorist coverage (when injured by a driver with insufficient insurance coverage). We have taken cases all the way to the Hawaii Supreme Court to fight for more coverage for our clients, making new law in the process.

There are many possible causes of auto accidents. In addition to negligent, distracted, or impaired drivers, they can include:
Not only do State and local counties have a legal duty to provide drivers with a safe shoulder to drive onto, but they also have a duty to provide a safe road. Poorly designed roads, poorly marked curves, and poorly lit roads are magnets for accidents. The lack of suitable guardrails and other highway safety devices can also lead to catastrophic accidents and injuries. Choosing a Honolulu car accident lawyer will be in your best interest after being involved in an auto accident.

Drivers in Hawaii have gotten worse. Not only are they distracted by cellphones, but they also drive faster, run more red lights, and ignore the rights of bicyclists, moped riders, and pedestrians. As a result, traffic fatalities and other catastrophic injuries in Honolulu are on the rise every year. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a traffic accident, you should trust your case to the lawyers whom other lawyers trust with a track record of success in all types of injuries, including the most serious, paraplegia, quadriplegia, brain damage, and death.
