Wrongful Death Suits in Hawaii

South Kona, HI - Multi-Vehicle Crash Kills One at Kaohe Rd and Ili Ili Rd

Similar to other kinds of civil injury cases, families who file a wrongful death suit will have to prove that the defendant is responsible for the death of their loved one through negligence or, according to liability laws, is otherwise accountable.  

For instance, a person could be found liable for wrongful death if:

  • Their negligence caused the victim’s death, as in a fatal car crash
  • They were a physician, nurse, or other health care provider who committed medical malpractice by failing to meet the standard of care when treating the victim
  • They were a designer, manufacturer, distributor, retailer, or other commercial entity liable for a dangerous or defective product
  • They were the owner of a property that had an unaddressed danger that led to a guest’s death
  • Knowingly and willingly committed assault or murder
