• Our Practice

    At the Law Offices of Joseph F. Zuiker, we strive to provide assistance to injured workers and accident victims throughout the Hawaiian Islands.  Our goal is to continue to support the Hawaii Worker's Compensation community by assisting injured workers in acquiring the best medical services available to allow their return to gainful employment as soon as medically appropriate. We are committed to helping injured workers of Hawaii receive just and appropriate resolution to their claims.

    Looking Back on 2017

    This past year our firm:

    • Acquired fair monetary settlements for workers who came to us with inappropriately low settlement offers or outright denials of impairment benefits. 
    • Offered legal services in multiple languages including Spanish, Tagalog, and Visayan/Cebuano.
    • Encouraged prompt treatment plan approvals to reduce claim costs.
    • Encouraged prompt appointment of experienced medical management nurses to clarify treatment needs.
    • Discouraged the use of “store bought” independent medical examiners.
    • Supported all reasonable claims’ adjustment requests, including use of impartial IMEs,   medical management nurses, and reasonable requests to return to work.
    • Provided injured workers with early understanding of the monetary limits of final work injury settlements to encourage their medical recovery and return to full gainful employment.
