Who can initiate a wrongful termination lawsuit?

At some point in time people in Hawaii will lose loved ones in their life. No one lives forever. The hope is that the loved one will live a long, full life and pass away peacefully in their sleep and many people do end up dying in that manner. However, many other people die much younger and unexpectedly. This could be because of a disease or illness or because of a fatal accident. Anytime this occurs it is very difficult on the family, but it can be particularly difficult when they know the accident could have been avoided.

Four-car accident results in one fatality

There are many things people can control when they are driving in Hawaii. They can control their speed, how close they travel behind other drivers, whether they signal their turns, whether they use their phones and many other factors. However, there are things they cannot control. They cannot control the weather which can create slippery driving conditions and most importantly they cannot control the other drivers on the roads. So, even when a driver is doing everything correctly, they still could be the victim of a car accident.

When are property owners liable for injuries on their property?

There are many different property owners in Hawaii. Some simply own their home and the property immediately surrounding it, others are store owners, others own office buildings or hotels. Depending on the type of property, sometimes people are invited onto the property either directly such as a homeowner having guests over while others are implicitly invited onto the property such as store owners who allow customers onto the property. However, sometimes people are not invited onto the property and are trespassing.

Maritime workers who are covered by the Jones Act

Hawaii has many businesses that operate on or around the ocean. These different business do many different types of work, but one major one is the shipping industry. There are many products that are transported over the ocean and many people work on the ships in the ship yards. These jobs are very important for the people who work the as they rely on them to earn their income and provide for them and their families. So, it is important that these people are healthy enough to actually work.
