Car Accidents in Hawaii
In Hawaii, simply being injured is not enough to allow you to seek compensation. If you sustained a serious and permanent injury, someone was killed, or your medical expenses total more than $5,000, you are entitled to sue the at-fault driver if you can prove that the other driver was malicious, careless, or otherwise acted negligently and that you contributed to a smaller percentage of the accident.
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. It is common for car accidents to involve intoxicated or irresponsible drivers who either carry no insurance at all or do not carry enough to compensate you fully for your injuries and damages.
