Property Damage Claim Information

Generally a property damage claim may arise in any of the ways that a personal injury claim arises. A product defective may cause property damage instead of personal injury. A defective condition on property (such as blocked culverts which cause general flooding during heavy rains) can give rise to property damage claims rather than personal injury. Even negligent driving of an automobile can give rise to damage to a building or other property- rather than an injury to a person. Please review the type of accident which caused your property damage to occur in the menu on the left for more information.

In order to obtain the services of an attorney on a contingency fee for the purpose of recovering lost value due to property damage, the damage has to be in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. This unfortunate situation puts many people with property damage claims at the mercy of unscrupulous insurance companies. These insurers feel that they can deny and delay property damage claims (such as collision damage claims in a car accident case) and eventually compel the claimant to settle for far less than the value of their claims. If you have are able to acquire proof that an insurer is doing this to you, then you may have a bad faith claim against the insurer involved.

Recent Personal Injury and Car Accident News and Cases related to Hawaii

On June 29, 2015, the Hawaii Supreme Court rendered its decision in the case of St. Paul Fire and Marine Ins. Co. v. Liberty Mutual Insurance, Hi. Sup. Ct. Case No SCCQ-14-0000727 (June 29, 2015). This case arose out of a wrongful death personal injury case handled by this office which resulted in a $4.1 million verdict in favor of our clients - even though Liberty Mutual, the primary liability insurer, never offered anything even close to its policy limits of $1 million. St. Paul - who had to pay our clients everything recovered in excess of the initial $1 million - claimed that Liberty Mutual committed bad faith towards it by failing to settle within its $1 million policy limits. The Hawaii Supreme Court agreed and found that an excess insurer has claims for bad faith against a primary insurer.
