Experienced Lawyers For Fatal Accidents In Hawaii

We have handled wrongful death actions for fatal car crashes, collisions with trucks, pedestrian accidents, plane crashes, medical malpractice cases and other scenarios. Our lawyers are skilled at demonstrating negligence of individuals as well as liability of employers and other third parties. We have the resources to hire professional investigators when necessary and we are willing to take cases all the way to trial if defendants and their insurance companies will not admit fault or settle for fair damages.

In a wrongful death lawsuit, the survivors are entitled to seek compensation for:

  • Loss of the deceased’s income over their expected life span
  • Medical bills and funeral expenses
  • Loss of consortium with a spouse
  • Loss of the person’s love, support and counsel
  • Loss of the person’s household contribution

In a separate survival action, the person’s estate can also seek damages for any conscious pain and suffering the deceased endured prior to death. Our attorneys are well-versed in Hawaii law and the elements of damages in these cases.
