Vehicle Collisions in Hawaii
Bringing a car accident suit allows injured victims to pursue recoveries for economic damages, like medical costs and lost wages, and noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering.
Proving negligence in car accident cases requires a knowledgeable and experienced attorney who is familiar with the many intricacies of Hawaii’s car insurance laws, to locate all potential sources of recovery, such as underinsurance motorist coverage in cases involving a driver with inadequate coverage or uninsured motorist coverage in cases involving a driver with no insurance.
Just like other states that follow no-fault insurance laws, Hawaii sets a tort threshold for suing the driver responsible for the 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
The statute of limitations on Hawaii personal injury claims is two years from the cause of action. Most insurance carriers won’t wait that long for you to make your claim. Car insurance policies typically contain provisions for making your claim promptly, which generally means within a few days.
Although 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 suits and the same prompt reporting requirements apply to insurance claims.
