Honolulu, HI - HPD Responds to Injury Crash at S Vineyard Blvd and Nuuanu Ave

A personal injury suit allows victims to claim economic damages, such as medical costs and lost income, as well as noneconomic damages like pain and suffering.

The statute of limitations on personal injury claims in Hawaii is two years from the day of your accident. Most insurance carriers, however, will not wait that long for you to make your claim. Car insurance policies typically contain provisions that you have to make your claim promptly, which generally means within a few days. 

Proving these kinds of cases demands an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer who understands the many nuances of Hawaii’s car insurance laws, to find other sources of reimbursement, like uninsured motorist coverage in cases involving a driver with no insurance, or underinsurance motorist coverage in cases involving a driver with inadequate coverage. 

Similar to other no-fault insurance states, Hawaii also sets a tort threshold for suing the negligent driver in a traffic accident. In Hawaii, you may only file a personal injury suit if:

  • You amassed medical expenses and other related damages totaling $5,000 or more
  • You sustained severe or permanent injuries like the loss of a bodily function, loss of a body part, or disfigurement  

This threshold only applies to personal injury claims as Hawaii has no value restriction for filing a suit for property damage. The two-year statute of limitations still applies to property lawsuits and the same prompt reporting requirements apply to insurance claims.
