In 2015, Ian Mattoch was recognized as “Lawyer of the Year” by Best Lawyers© for Hawaii in the area of Product Liability Litigation – Plaintiffs. This honor reflects Ian’s outstanding legal representation of Hawaii’s victims and their families in this highly specialized area of law.

We have recently resolved two cases against the manufacturer and distributor of defective motorcycle helmets that resulted in catastrophic brain injury. Ian has also settled cases against dietary supplement manufacturers and distributors for designing a product that was the cause of a death of a young mother and an anoxic brain injury in another.

Hawaii law allows for product liability actions based on both negligence and strict liability. For the past 45 years, the Law Offices of Ian Mattoch has successfully represented numerous victims and their family members that were injured as a result of design defect, manufacturing defect, or insufficient warning of unreasonably dangerous aspects of its product.

In product liability cases, you need to hire an attorney who has resources to advance the cost of researchers in the area of safety, engineering, and medicine. It is imperative to have experienced experts that can link the defect of the product to the injury sustained. The attorney you hire needs to have years of experience and relationships with experts who have handled similar cases.
