Honolulu Wrongful Death Lawyer

Losing a loved one can be emotional and difficult. It is especially devastating to lose a loved one due to somebody else’s recklessness or negligence. In Hawaii, the family of the deceased can file what’s known as a wrongful death lawsuit if another party was negligent in causing the death of a loved one. Wrongful death claims are specifically authorized under Hawaii Revised Statutes 633-3.

An unexpected and preventable death can leave family members facing intense emotional and financial pressures. We want to hear your story and help you to cope with your loss. We understand no amount of compensation will truly eliminate your feelings of grief, anger, and loss. However, taking legal action can provide important financial relief and justice. A wrongful death action can help to provide justice by holding the party who caused the tragedy responsible for their carelessness.

Compensation can include both economic and non-economic damages

Economic:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Medical expenses
  • Future earnings
  • Loss of benefits

Non-economic:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish of the survivors
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of protection

In a wrongful death lawsuit, the survivors may seek compensation for medical, funeral, and other related expenses as well as for loss of consortium, pain, and suffering. But for a Wrongful Death lawsuit to be successful, you will need to prove the responsible party was at fault. Because this is not always an easy task, an experienced and knowledgeable attorney is needed for a successful Wrongful Death lawsuit. These cases are usually resolved through a settlement. But, if settlement does not seem like an option, our attorneys are not afraid to take your case to court.

Statute of Limitations
It is important to be aware of the statute of limitations in a Wrongful death lawsuit. If your wrongful death lawsuit is not filed prior to the expiration of the statute of limitations, you may lose your ability to obtain a settlement in your case. Currently, In Hawaii, there is a two (2) year statute of limitations for wrongful death claims.

If you have lost a loved one in an accident, we can help you in your time of need by offering strong, compassionate legal support to you and your family.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with the Attorneys For Freedom Law Group during a... couple difficult circumstances in my life and although it is never fun to have the need for a defense attorney, the tireless efforts that Mark, Rachel and the rest of the team put in on my cases went over and above. At the end of the day my results were better than I could have expected. I highly recommend them for all of their services and more than satisfied with everything that they did for me.Thank you Attorneys for Freedom,Chip Kotyread more

I highly recommend the Attorneys For Freedom! I signed up for the attorneys on retainer program and... it has literally saved me tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees. The program manager, Jonathan Harris, guided me through the process of using their legal service’s like a true professional. The communication has been excellent and it truly was refreshing and comforting knowing I had a reputable law firm helping me every step of the way. He actually relieved me from the headaches of trying to deal with this issue, so I could focus on our business and as a result my business partner and I did get a favorable outcome that we’re happy with.read more
