Traumatic Brain Injuries

Hawaii Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

For over 45 years, the Law Offices of Ian Mattoch has represented persons and their families who have suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of someone else’s negligence from car accidents, slip/fall injuries, workplace accidents, defective drugs, assaults, liquor liability claims, and defective products. This life-changing injury may require acute and post-acute hospitalization for close to two years before reintegration back into the community. Future medical care spanning the lifetime of the traumatically brain injured survivor may be achieved with the help of case management coordinators to schedule doctor and therapy appointments, and arrange for nursing staff and appropriate medical equipment and supplies that will be used throughout the day for the care of the traumatic brain injury survivor.

In a traumatic brain injury personal injury claim, it is paramount to have an attorney with resources to be able to hire experts who are not only board certified in neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, neuropsychology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, but to find experts who are also treating patients in reputable hospitals or have academic appointments to conduct research and teach at nearby universities. Ian Mattoch has built relationships with world-renowned brain injury experts, after collaborating on cases with them, speaking on panels with them, and having them testify in depositions and court.

Through his representation of persons with traumatic brain injury, Ian was a strong supporter and active Board Member of the Brain Injury Association of Hawaii.  Ian served as Legal Counsel, past Treasurer, and past President of the Board of Directors for the Brain Injury Association of Hawaii.  This “in-the-trenches” participation contributed to Ian’s knowledge of political issues, resources and understanding the needs of persons with traumatic brain injury.

Ian was appointed in 2002 to serve on the Board of Directors for the Neurotrauma Advisory Board for the State of Hawaii’s Department of Health.  Ian was actively involved with state and national legislative issues for persons with traumatic brain injury through 2019.

You need an attorney and a law firm that has experience with working with clients that have suffered a traumatic brain injury, who have the experience and knowledge to make sure all areas of investigation, claim management, life care planning, and economic loss projections have been accounted for, and to ensure all of the documentation that goes along with these types of claims is gathered and organized.
