Is Hawaii a no-fault state?

Yes. Hawaii has been a no-fault state since 1973, according to the Insurance Information Institute. As a no-fault state, Hawaii requires drivers to carry PIP coverage so that their own insurance covers some or all of their medical expenses after a car accident, regardless of who's at fault.

Additional car insurance coverages to consider

If you're leasing or financing a vehicle, most lenders require you to carry comprehensive auto coverage and collision auto coverage in addition to Hawaii's state-required coverages. Comprehensive and collision pay to repair or replace your car regardless of fault if it's in an accident, gets stolen, or is otherwise damaged as the result of a covered incident. It also makes sense to add these physical damage coverages if you're not sure you can afford a new car or major repairs after an accident.
