Honolulu Wrongful Death Lawyer | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

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.

5 stars just isnt enough for Andrew Marcantel, Marc Victor, and the entire staff here.When my... boyfriend was wrongly accused of a totally vile crime, neither of us had any experience navigating the "just-us" system.If you've faced potentially life-altering accusations, and you feel like the system is set up to empower police, prosecutors, judges, and pretty much everyone except you, then you're right! If you want to level the playing feild, Attorneys for Freedom will accomplish that.Some others have commented about the price. Good representation does cost money, unfortunately. What is a persons future worth?Compared to the competition, which is also expensive, the value you will get at this law firm is just unbelievable. Andrew especially is so great at walking you through possible scenerios, guiding you through important decisions, and has the experience to truly get good results. Extremely knowledgeable and creative not just "aggressive". He is also an excellent communicator, both in the office and in the court.Speaking of communication, the paralegal team at even some more expensive law firms will leave you wondering what it is they are paid to do. This is not the case at Attorneys for Freedom. Ashley Crispino and Kaylie Kline did an amazing job at both keeping us in the loop and being available when needed.Reading "Case Dismissed" after what felt like an eternity of fighting was the best outcome we could have ever asked for.I told my Aunt who was very worried about us at the height of all the absurdity that I felt like having Andy on our side was better than prayer. And I was right.read more

This is my first time ever needing an attorney and my attorney was Kate and she did an amazing job... with my case! Kate took time to go through all of the evidence so she understood everything before going to court. Kate assistant Madalyn was also super helpful and very sweet! Anytime I called she was very understanding and helped me walk through the process when I did not understand something and always had an upbeat positive attitude! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely being going back to Kate!read more
