South Kohala, HI (July 23, 2022) – Three people were taken by paramedics to Queen’s North Hawaii Community Hospital after a single-car collision on Old Saddle Road on Friday, July 22nd. 

A report from the Hawaii Fire Department indicates that at about 12:45 p.m., the driver of the vehicle lost control of the car while they were trying to go around another vehicle. 

One of the vehicle’s occupants sustained critical injuries, another was in serious condition, and the third is stable. It is unclear which of the victims was the driver. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Hilo, HI - Single-Car Crash on Old Saddle Rd Puts Three in Hospital

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. 

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. 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, one 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. 

If you were injured in a car accident caused by another person’s negligence, it is important that you reach out to a reputable personal injury lawyer from Leavitt, Yamane & Soldner who knows what you and your family are going through.
