Accident Lawyer Hawaii video - transcript
Aloha, my name is William H. Lawson. I've been an attorney here in Hawaii for more than 30 years.
Being in an accident can be a traumatic experience.
I attended Iolani School and graduated from Stanford Law School. I represent people, not businesses, and I work directly with my clients. I give my clients individualized personal attention on their cases. I will personally handle your case.
You worry about your health and the well-being of your loved ones. Will you be able to pay your medical bills? How long will you have to miss work? Will you be able to provide for your family? Will you be the same person? Will you be able to fully recover your health?
And before you know it, you're put on the defensive by the insurance company. They want to interview you, to have you fill out paperwork, to photograph your car, to photograph you, and so on. That can be pretty disturbing. Especially when what you want to do is to focus on your health and the well-being of your loved ones.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it would be an honor to have the opportunity to assist you. Please call our New Client Hotline at 808-524-5300 or our office number at 808-528-2525. We are located at Century Square, 1188 Bishop Street, Suite 2902 in Honolulu, Hawaii. For more information, please explore this website further and/or contact us by phone or by email. It would be my honor to work with you in resolving your claims.

An important victory in the fight for individual rights (as opposed to insurer rights) is the case of Yukumoto and HMSA v. Tawahara. In that case on May 26, 2017, the Hawaii Supreme Court rejected the efforts of a health insurer who tried to convert its insurance coverage into a 'loan agreement' and recover its medical expense payments from Mr. Yukumoto when he had a 3rd party claim - in spite of the fact that he was not being fully compensated for his losses. This insidious insurance practice has been damaging the citizens and members of the Hawaii community for many years. For more info, see the decision here: Yukumoto and HMSA v. Tawahara, Hawaii Sup. Ct. No. SCAP-15-0000460 (May 26, 2017).
