Hawaii Wrongful Death Lawyer
Wrongful death claims are civil actions filed by the survivors of an individual or individuals who lost their lives in an accident due to the negligence or misconduct of another individual or party. The purpose of the claims is to help those survivors who are left without the love, support, and income of the deceased family member. While it may seem unlikely for money to help heal any pain or sadness you may experience due to the loss of a loved one, the awarded damages can help provide financial stability for the loved ones of the deceased.
The compensation provided for wrongful death claims can help ease the financial burdens associated with the loss of a loved one, such as leftover bills, funeral expenses, lost income, and other expenses survivors may have to face after the death of their family member. In some cases, family members may be eligible to recover what is known as punitive damages, which is compensation awarded to punish the responsible party if their negligence was reckless or particularly egregious.
Depending on your situation, the compensation you are eligible to recover may vary, which is why working with an experienced wrongful death attorney can help. For more information about wrongful death claims, or if you believe you have a claim, contact a Morgan & Morgan attorney today.

The Most Common Wrongful Death Causes in Hawaii
While tragic accidents can happen every day, in some cases, certain deaths could have been preventable. Below, we have provided a list of the most common causes of wrongful death claims in Hawaii.
Accidents: An accident may occur as a result of defective vehicles, negligent drivers, or work-related and construction accidents. When someone's death is caused due to another's negligence, the relatives of the deceased may file a wrongful death lawsuit. In Hawaii, some of the most common accidents include pedestrian, bike, motorcycle, car, and truck accidents.
Drowning: Businesses such as hotels and or recreational operations are required to meet certain regulations when offering or hosting water-based activities. However, when these regulations are ignored, swimmers, divers, or individuals who may be near a body of water can suffer deadly consequences. Family members of the deceased may be eligible to file a lawsuit against any businesses responsible for their death.
Medical Malpractice: When doctors or medical staff members commit negligent errors that competent doctors would not have done, such as surgical mistakes or incorrect diagnoses, often it can lead to the injury or death of a patient. When this occurs, the responsible party may be held liable for damages, or in the case that the patient has died from a careless medical error, family members may file a wrongful death suit against the medical staff involved.
If you suspect a loved one is the victim of a wrongful death, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation. For more information, we urge you to contact a Morgan & Morgan wrongful death attorney today.
