Hawaii Auto Collisions
Those injured in Hawaii auto accidents can seek compensation for damages like lost wages, medical care costs, diminished earning capacity, pain, suffering, and more through filing a personal injury claim with an attorney.
In Hawaii, an injured crash victim has two years from the time of the crash to file a claim. The law states that after two years, the statute of limitations expires and you can no longer file a valid personal injury claim for compensation. It is important to work within these time constraints so you can get the money you need to recover.
Working with a skilled and experienced personal injury lawyer is your best bet in successfully filing a car accident claim and establishing liability. A lawyer will know the ins and outs of personal injury law, specifically concerning car crash insurance in Hawaii. A reliable lawyer can also help you find other forms of financial compensation so you can get all of the money available to you during this difficult time.
Hawaii places a minimum threshold on injury severity, like many other states. Once you reach this threshold, victims are eligible to sue negligent parties for damages. In Hawaii, you reach this point when:
- You accumulate medical care expenses and other associated damages that cost over $5,000.
- You sustain a severe and/or permanent injury like disfigurement, paralysis, loss of limb, or loss of bodily function.
The majority of the auto crashes that happen in the United States and throughout Hawaii are caused by driver negligence. In fact, over 90% of these wrecks are caused by drivers who choose to act negligently while behind the wheel. Considering this fact, the chances that your wreck was caused by the actions of a negligent driver are high.
