Kaimuki, HI – Three Injured When Car Crashes into Dialysis Center on Harding Ave at Koko Head Ave
November 5, 2022
Kaimuki, HI (November 05, 2022) – Three people sustained serious injuries on Friday, November 4th when an SUV crashed into a dialysis center in Kaimuki.
The collision took place at about 5:00 p.m. at Liberty Dialysis Hawaii in the area of Harding Avenue and Koko Head Avenue when an SUV drove through a large window into the clinic’s waiting area.
Officials from Honolulu EMS said that a 51-year-old man was critically injured during the crash. Two men in their 70s, one of whom was the driver of the SUV, were in serious condition.
Three additional victims also sustained non-critical injuries.
A second vehicle was damaged in the incident. Officers said it was parked on the opposite side of the parking lot and thrust back into a tree.
Although Honolulu police crash investigators remained on the scene for several hours, the events leading up to the crash are still unclear.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Injury Accidents in Hawaii
A personal injury lawsuit lets victims claim economic damages, like medical expenses and lost wages, as well as noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering.
The statute of limitations on Hawaii personal injury claims is two years from the cause of action. Most insurance companies, however, are not going to wait that long for you to file your claim. Car insurance policies generally contain provisions stating you must make your claim promptly, by which they mean a few days.
These types of cases require a skilled and knowledgeable lawyer who knows the various nuances of Hawaii’s car insurance laws; an attorney who can find additional sources of reimbursement, such as uninsured motorist coverage in cases involving a driver without auto insurance, or underinsurance motorist coverage in cases involving a driver with insufficient 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
