Insurance 101 – Chapter 14 – Volume 8 – Diminution


Similarly, in Hawaii, in County of Kauai v. Pacific Standard Life Insurance Co., 653 P.2d 766, 65 Haw. 318 (Haw. 10/14/1982), diminution of value was used to establish value for the purposes of condemnation, and in Clog Holdings, N.V. v. Bailey, 92 Haw. 374, 992 P.2d 69 (Haw. 02/01/2000), diminution was used as the method of establishing values for loss to real property. Whether Hawaii will use diminution in an auto insurance situation has not yet been resolved.
