Our efforts to relieve the suffering of victims

  1. We tirelessly provide support right after a traffic accident.

    We are skilled at dealing with traffic accidents. Many of our clients have been pleased by the unwavering support we provided right after an accident.

    When someone has been in a traffic accident, certain steps have to be taken. The police may need to be notified (do the police need to be notified since the accident resulted in injury or death?). Other steps also need to be taken. The victim needs to undergo appropriate tests and examinations (tests and examinations that need to be performed right after an accident), the victim needs to receive appropriate treatment, the grade of the victim’s permanent injury needs to be correctly certified, and the victim needs to receive a settlement. Some attorneys tell victims to contact them once their condition stabilizes (once they have received a settlement offer), but you shouldn’t wait for your condition stabilize and then consult an attorney. By then, it’s too late. Many people who have come to us should have consulted us earlier.

  2. Our attorneys handle all negotiations with fussy insurance companies.

    Isn’t dealing with an insurance company like that a hassle? Our attorneys specialize in helping victims of traffic accidents, so let us deal with the insurance company.

    An insurance company’s claims adjuster calls, asking “How are you doing your recent injury?” (Even though I told you how I was doing just 2 weeks ago). Or maybe he says, “It’s been 3 months since the accident, is your treatment almost finished?” Or he might say, “A settlement is typically this amount.” Or he only calls when you’re busy. But if you call him after 5 PM, no one answers. Isn’t dealing with an insurance company like that a hassle? Our attorneys specialize in helping victims of traffic accidents, so let us deal with the insurance company. We won’t press you on whether your treatment has finished. Moreover, the amount of a typical settlement quoted by the insurance company is merely what it wants to pay. The quoted amount is definitely not one decided by the courts.

  3. Receiving appropriate certification of your grade of permanent injury

    If you consult us right after your accident, the grade of your permanent injury should be correctly certified.

    Once a victim’s condition stabilizes, a decision is made as to whether or not the victim will have aftereffects based on the extent of the victim’s injury. If victims have the same permanent injuries, then they should be certified as having the same grade of permanent injury, right? Not at all. Basically, a victim submits a formal application for certification and the documentation is reviewed. If there are problems with the application, then a permanent injury cannot be certified. Our attorneys regularly receive medical information from specialists, they study techniques of image interpretation, and they are experts in dealing with permanent injuries due to traffic accidents. If you have doubts about whether your permanent injury was correctly certified (in other words, the grade of your injury), then please consult us since we specialize in helping victims of traffic accidents. If you consult us right after your accident, the grade of your permanent injury should be correctly certified.

  4. We’ve handled lots of settlements! We can get you certified for a higher grade of permanent injury and we can vastly increase your compensation

    We handle at least 40 consultations a month. In many cases, we have vastly increased compensation and we have had clients certified for a higher grade of permanent injury. More than anything else, we free clients from the stress of dealing with an insurance company. Many of our clients have been pleased to no longer have to deal with stress.

Here are just a few examples of settlements that Aiko Law Offices
obtained as a result of traffic accidents

  • Feel free to contact us

    Aiko Law Offices offers free consultations regarding traffic accidents. You may be overwhelmed after being injured in a traffic accident, so you can consult us once things have settled down. Many victims of traffic accidents from outside the City of Otsu, Shiga Prefecture (and outside the prefecture) have consulted us. Naturally, a phone consultation about a traffic accident is free.

  • Aren't legal fees covered by insurance?

    If you have been in a traffic accident, insurance may cover legal fees for you and your immediate family. If so, then the insurance company will cover up to 3 million yen in legal fees. Legal fees rarely exceed 3 million yen, so you do not need to worry about those fees if they are covered by insurance.

  • Seeking damages for pain and suffering

    Damages for pain and suffering as a result of a traffic accident are divided into 3 types: (1) damages for loss of life, (2) damages for illness or injury, and (3) damages for sequelae. Thinking about these types of damages separately is crucial. The opposing insurance company is comfortable grouping those 3 types together in order to reduce the total amount of damages. If you have concerns about damages for pain and suffering as a result of a traffic accident, please consult with Aiko Law Offices here in the City of Otsu, Shiga Prefecture. Many people outside of Shiga Prefecture have also consulted us.

  • Consult us about fatal accidents as well

    We also handle cases where someone has died as a result of a traffic accident. Someone dear to you may have died.You may be overwhelmed handling your loved one’s final affairs, but compensation talks are crucial. In the event of a fatal accident, the opposing insurance company will often respond civilly. That is to be expected. Without a doubt, however, the compensation offered will not be appropriate; instead, it may be 20-40 times the amount offered. Please consult with Aiko Law Offices in the City of Otsu, Shiga Prefecture.

What our clients
have said about us

  • When I saw the look in Mr. Hido’s eyes, I immediately decided to hire his firm.

    A man in his 40s residing in the City of Otsu, Shiga Prefecture

    I consulted various law firms. When I consulted Aiko Law Offices, Mr. Hido had a fierce look in his eyes, so I decided to hire Aiko Law Offices.

    I’m very happy with the outcome. I’ve dealt with many lawyers thus far, but Mr. Hido of Aiko Law Offices is the best. In a case involving my son, my son was verbally abusive, but Mr. Hido didn’t give up and he saw the case to its end, for which I thank him. Moreover, Mr. Hido contacted me via e-mail, so I was readily able to talk with him while at work. If something happens (and I hope it doesn’t), I would consult Mr. Hido. Thank you.

  • I consulted a variety of law firms and decided to hire your firm.

    A woman in her 20s residing in the City of Kyoto

    I consulted a variety of law offices and chose Aiko Law Offices.

    I had some knowledge of what was going on, and I learned the going rate for damages for pain and suffering when you consult an attorney and when you don’t. I found an attorney who worked well with me by fully understanding my wishes and thinking and by doing the utmost to represent me.

    I received damages for pain and suffering in the amount I expected, so I have no complaints about the outcome. I told my attorney to get the most from the other side, no matter how much time it took, and I got the amount I wanted faster than I expected.

  • I thought about consulting your firm immediately.

    A man in his 20s residing in the City of Ritto, Shiga Prefecture

    I thought about consulting your firm immediately. Aiko Law Offices accepts clients late on weekdays and on weekends/holidays and it is close to Otsu Station, so I consulted the firm.

    The attorney acted promptly after I consulted the firm, and the attorney gave me easy-to-understand instructions, which was a big help. I was reassured since the attorney clearly told me what he could and couldn’t do. Looking back, I was anxious since some of the attorney’s phrasing and responses were vague. My case went along smoothly in accordance with the timeline the attorney described to me, but I was unsure about how long the talks with the opposing insurance company would take. Thus, I would have appreciated detailed information as the talks neared their end.

  • I’m glad I got a second opinion.

    A woman in her 20s residing in the City of Kusatsu, Shiga Prefecture

    There were often days when I couldn’t get ahold of the opposing insurance company. As each day ended, I was anxious about what was going on. Mr. Hido took charge of my case, and I was relieved once he explained things in an easy-to-understand manner.

    To be honest, I was surprised at the amount I was offered. My legal fees were covered by insurance, so I consulted an attorney recommended by the insurance company, but I was turned down. I’m glad I went with Aiko Law Offices.

    Thank you.

What can you do for a victim of a traffic accident?

I’ve been in a traffic accident, and I want to concentrate on recovering from my injury.

However, the opposing insurance company’s claims adjuster doesn’t care about me, and he’s only concerned about the paperwork.
Moreover, the claims adjuster ignores my requests and he always calls me at inconvenient times, but no one answers if I call after 5 PM.
What’s more, I’ve been told the reimbursement for treatment fees is ending. I’m still in pain and I want to continue receiving outpatient care.
It’s no wonder — the opposing insurance company’s claims adjuster represents the person who caused the accident.
The claims adjuster is definitely not your representative (he’s not on your side).

交通事故被害者の為に何が出来るのか
Will the opposing insurance company’s claims adjuster work closely with you to get you treatment and increase your settlement?
Aiko Law Offices is skilled at dealing with traffic accidents. We will represent you by negotiating to increase your settlement. We are committed to providing extensive support to victims of traffic accidents right after the accident. We help victims to receive appropriate treatment and to continue receiving treatment so that they can directly concentrate on recovering.
Another important task is obtaining correct certification of a victim’s grade of permanent injury.
When the grade of a victim’s permanent injury is being determined, documents are reviewed. Victims with the same injury are not necessarily certified as having the same grade of permanent injury.
A victim needs extensive support right after an accident. Some attorneys may tell you to contact them once your condition stabilizes, but once your condition stabilizes it may be too late to deal with your case.
If you fail to respond appropriately, from dealing with the police right after an accident until a settlement is reached, then you may be unable to receive just compensation.
Some people are concerned about legal fees, but they do not need to worry since those fees are offset by an increased settlement.
If legal fees are covered, then you do not need to worry about expenses.
We work to obtain a fair settlement so that victims of traffic accidents can concentrate on recovering without worrying about the cost. Why not drop by and consult with Aiko Law Offices?

  • Traffic accidents in Shiga Prefecture (the City of Otsu)

    The prevalence of traffic accidents in Shiga Prefecture (the City of Otsu)

    Like nationwide trends, the number of traffic accidents in Shiga Prefecture has decreased by about 200 each year. Most fatal accidents involve pedestrians age 50 or over. Accidents are most frequent in the City of Otsu, followed by those in the City of Higashiomi, those in the City of Nagahama, and those in the City of Omihachiman. Like in other areas, the number of bicycle accidents has leveled off. In the City of Otsu, there were 796 traffic accidents in 2016 (–97), 4 fatalities (–3), and 968 people who were injured (-133) (According to the Shiga Prefectural Police’s public webpage).

    A large compensation may be awarded even when an accident involves a bicycle. Bicycle insurance has become mandatory. Be sure you have personal liability insurance.

    Damages as a result of a traffic accident

    In Shiga Prefecture, opposing insurance companies are tending to offer less damages as a result of a traffic accident. Many non-life insurance companies reported record-high earnings a couple of years ago (2016), but automobile insurance premiums will drop substantially in the future as automated vehicles come closer to reality. For non-life insurance companies, revenue from automobile insurance premiums accounts for most of their sales, and those companies have tightened their purse strings.

    Nonetheless, these circumstances have no bearing on why victims of traffic accidents should not receive fair compensation. Don’t be fooled by a claims adjuster telling you “this is the going rate” and don’t be too quick to settle. If you have any doubts about dealing with the opposing insurance company, please consult our Law Offices.
