I assist clients with the following personal injury issues:
- Wrongful death
- If someone has died and you have lost a loved one due to irresponsible, dangerous or careless behavior, your case is about more than money: It is about setting things right, holding wrongdoers responsible and understanding what happened to prevent it from ever happening again. The death of a spouse, a parent, a child or a sibling has long-ranging ramifications and involves a multitude of issues. My office has significant experience to help you through these matters, and I suggest that you see my page on representative wrongful death cases that I have handled.
- Serious Injuries
- An injury may vastly change the injured parties life, ability to work, and be involved with the activities they once did. Such an injury can render the person disabled and in chronic pain. My office can help injured parties navigate the claim, liability and insurance issues. We also investigate to determine the best course of action.
- Car accidents
- If you have been injured in a collision involving a motor vehicle of any type to include a car, truck, or motorcycle, I can help you with the crash related injury and insurance issues. As a former insurance defense attorney, I am knowledgeable of Hawaii insurance law and the claim procedures used by insurance companies. I can also help claimant injured “by” car collisions, when those people injured were riding a bicycle, operating a motorcycle, or as a pedestrian, or even a operating a golf cart, and are struck by the automobile. I can help you address the insurance and medical claim issues and seek compensation for your recovery.
- Bicycle, Moped, or Motorcycle
- The operators of two wheeled vehicles and their passengers are at great risk of injury when a motorist fails to be careful. My office has handled many cases involving Bicycles, Mopeds and motorcycles and I am familiar with the insurance and claim issues to successfully handle your case.
- Slip, Trip, and Fall injuries
- A slip and fall injury can come out of nowhere: You may be completely unaware of the conditions that caused you to hurt yourself. Debilitating, devastating and/or life changing injuries may arise from a dangerous, but not visibly apparent condition. I can help you hold the accountable party responsible for the fault in causing you harm and injury from their negligence.
- Vacation accidents
- Suffering an injury while on vacation can turn a long planned family or personal vacation into a stressful ordeal. Attorney Matthew S. Kohm can help you address the claims process, collecting information, and addressing insurance issues and will keep you fully informed as he helps you work toward a fair compensation.
- Insurance Disputes
- Many claims involve insurance issues and as a former insurance defense attorney, my office understands these issues. Additionally, I handle insurance coverage dispute cases to help people with claims due to an insurance company denying coverage or improperly handling a claim.
