Work With An Experienced Car Accident Attorney In Maui
Maui and its neighbor islands are not known for their heavy traffic, but motor vehicle, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents routinely occur. They commonly result in serious injuries and deaths.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a motor vehicle accident on Maui or another island, talk with the attorneys at Menzer Law Firm, PLLC. We are highly experienced in pursuing personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits as well as negotiating full and fair insurance settlements. We will guide you through the insurance claim process and litigation with compassion and respect. We offer free initial consultations and accept accident cases on a contingency fee basis. There are no upfront or hourly fees.
Determining Responsibility For An Auto Accident
Once you hire us to represent you after a car accident on Maui, we immediately begin to collect and analyze evidence, including:
- The police and accident report
- Photos of the crash
- Any video footage of the crash
- Eyewitness statements
Depending on the severity and complexity of the crash, we may hire an accident reconstruction expert. This is a professional who can gather and use data to determine the contributing factors of the crash. An accident reconstructionist can often determine the speed at which the vehicles were moving, the direction and angle at which the vehicles collided and much more.
Through our investigation, we will determine who directly caused the crash. We will look into this person’s employment, driving and criminal record. We will determine whether the at-fault driver was working for their full-time employer at the time of the crash or was driving for Uber or Lyft. We will learn if the negligent driver borrowed the car. All of this information helps us identify any liable parties in addition to the negligent driver, such as an employer or vehicle owner. We then will take steps to verify the insurance coverage for the driver and other parties.
Common Car Accident Injuries
We have earned significant compensation for car accident victims suffering from:
- Broken bones
- Dislocated joints
- Soft tissue injuries
- Herniated discs
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis

Whether you or a loved one suffered moderate or catastrophic injuries in a crash, our lawyers are here to help. Do not hesitate to call us to speak with an experienced car accident attorney about your rights and options. If a relative or loved one passed away from their car crash injuries, we will discuss your rights under Hawaii’s wrongful death law. When another party’s negligence is responsible for your loved one’s death, your family and the loved one’s estate may be entitled to compensation.
Compensation For Motor Vehicle Accidents
Our lawyers will fight for you to receive compensation for your past and future damages, including:
- Medical bills
- Property damage
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional and mental anguish
- Physical limitations
- Reduced earning capacity
- Reduced quality of life
- Loss of companionship
A majority of auto accident claims are resolved by a settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. When you are injured in a crash, our accident lawyers thoroughly investigate who was at fault and who is liable. There may be one or more other drivers involved. When several other drivers are involved, we will determine each party’s contribution to the collision. Also, there may be liable parties in addition to the negligent driver(s). We may pursue compensation from the vehicle owners or the drivers’ employers.
