Note: paralegals are legal assistants who help attorneys in their law
practices. A personal injury accident paralegal often assists with the
initial intake of information related to a personal injury claim. Cases where
a paralegal would be involved include car accidents (involving all types of
motor vehicles- trucks, buses, motorcycles, mopeds, etc), bicycle and
pedestrian accidents; slip and fall accidents, trip and fall accidents, and
other premises liability accidents; maritime accidents (accidents in the ocean
or at sea); accidents resulting from defective
products (products liability claims); medical malpractice claims; and claims for
other professional malpractice.
Deadline for filing your claim in court
Hello and welcome. As Mr. Lawson's paralegal, I must first warn you about the existence of a deadline for filing your claim in court. Every type of legal claim has a deadline for filing that claim in court. That deadline is known as the Statute of Limitations. These deadlines differ from state to state. The deadlines discussed in this website are those applicable under HAWAII law.
After the expiration of the deadline, a claim usually will be lost- regardless of its merits. There are various exceptions to the deadlines (minority, incompetency, etc.), so it is still worth evaluating a claim even after the deadline has expired. PLEASE NOTE THAT BECAUSE OF THESE DEADLINES, YOU MUST ACT PROMPTLY on any claims which you believe you may wish to pursue. For more information, please click on the
link provided below.
Now that you have familiarized yourself with the statute of limitations, I will be happy to take down some preliminary information to assist Mr. Lawson in evaluating your case.
Please take a seat and make yourself comfortable.
Please use the following form to tell to William H. Lawson about your serious accident/injury case.

Hawaii Personal Injury and Accident Law News and Cases
Do you ever wonder if a claimant should hire an attorney or "go it alone" on an accident case? Without an attorney, a claimant has no power to force an insurance company to do anything. According to page 5 of Allstate Insurance Company's own internal document entitled "Unrepresented Segment Training" (which was obtained in a lawsuit in Florida challenging Allstate's unfair claims settlement practices), "represented claims settle for 2-3 times more than unrepresented claims". You can see it for yourself here on page 5 (pdf page 4 of 7). If you review the rest of this pamphlet, you will see that some insurers, like Allstate, actually have training programs to teach their claims representatives how to best persuade claimants not to hire an attorney. Are you still wondering?
