HILO, Hawaii, May 6, 2019 (Big Island Now) — Leilani Estates homeowner and lifelong Hawai‘i resident Howard Konanui Sr. is one of 11 Lloyd’s of London policyholders who joined dozens of others in lawsuits against Lloyd’s and its affiliates.
According to a Jan. 21, 2019, press release from the law office of Jeffrey E. Foster, in this latest Lloyd’s lawsuit, the plaintiffs’ homes have experienced delays, denials and unprecedented dismissiveness in connection with claims filed on homes that have sustained catastrophic damage following the Kīlauea eruption.
Konanui owned two homes located right next to each other in Leilani Estates. Both homes sustained significant damage. One home was insured by the Hawai‘i Property Insurance Association, commonly known as HPIA. The other home was insured by Lloyd’s of London and Worldwide Facilities, a Lloyd’s of London affiliate.
