$400,000: Settlement for a bicycle injury accident.
$370,000: Settlement for a head injury due to a moped accident.

$165,000: This settlement was for a client who was rear-ended while driving his car. He underwent surgery to repair his shoulder injury, and he incurred extensive wage loss.
$150,000: We obtained this settlement for a client who was injured in a bicycle accident. As she was riding through an intersection and another vehicle failed to yield the right of way. This caused our client to collide with the side of the vehicle. Our client suffered serious injuries that required surgery.
Surprisingly, the insurance company denied liability, so we had to take the case to arbitration.

$100,000: We obtained this settlement for a client who was hit by a car while crossing the street on a crosswalk. The client fractured several bones. Unfortunately, $100,000 was the policy limits; otherwise, the settlement would have been much larger.
$100,000: Our client was driving his vehicle through an intersection when another vehicle turned left in front of him. He suffered serious injuries that required multiple surgeries. These were the policy limits. If the limits were higher, we would have obtained a larger settlement for him.

$95,000: Settlement against a taxi company for our client's injuries as passengers.
$95,000: We obtained this settlement for a client who was hit on his motorcycle. He was driving through an intersection, and another vehicle attempted to turn left in front of him. Our client did not have time to stop or swerve, so he collided with the side of the vehicle. Our client suffered fractured bones in the accident, which required surgery to repair.
$95,000: This was a settlement for a client who was struck on a crosswalk fracturing his leg in multiple places.
$94,000: This settlement was for a client who was hit while riding his bicycle. He fractured multiple bones, which required surgery.
$90,000: We obtained this settlement for a client who was struck by another vehicle while riding his moped. He had to undergo surgery to repair ligaments in his knee.
Please keep in mind that many factors are taken into account when determining a case settlement amount. The biggest factor is injuries. Notice that most of the large settlements listed above-involved surgeries. Surgeries are very expensive; therefore, insurance companies know that they have to offer a lot more for a claim involving surgeries.
Another factor is the insurance policy limits. The above list would be at least three times as long as everyone had at least three hundred thousand dollars in insurance policy limits. Sadly, in Hawaii, many people only purchase the minimum insurance policy limit of $20,000. It’s tragic when our clients are injured by someone who has the minimum limits, and our clients also don’t have underinsured motorist insurance. Please make sure you have underinsured motorist insurance coverage. It’s quite inexpensive, but if you’re seriously injured in an accident, then at least you’ll have adequate insurance coverage to compensate you for your injuries.
