Waipahu, HI - Three Lanes Closed After Multi-Car Injury Crash on I-H1 at Waimalu

If your accident left you with considerable injuries and hospital bills equaling $5,000 or more or left you permanently handicapped or disfigured, you may have grounds to seek financial recovery from the driver who was at fault.

Hawaii abides by no-fault auto insurance regulations so, generally speaking, you will be expected to file a claim with your own insurance company to claim remuneration for your medical expenses with no regard given to how the accident occurred. 

A Hawaii vehicle accident lawyer who has years of experience learning and working with our state-specific laws and regulations can recommend the most pragmatic way to secure the financial compensation you desperately need after a serious car accident.
