Car Accidents in Hawaii
Regrettably, many car accidents 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. This means you will have to show that the other driver was careless, malicious, 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 or underinsured motorist coverage.
In Hawaii, 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. Simply being injured is not enough to allow you to seek compensation.
