Finding and Choosing a Wrongful Death Lawyer

If someone you love has been killed in an accident you probably should seek the advice of an experienced wrongful death lawyer right away! Following a fatal accident the impact on the family may be dramatic. Choosing an experienced and successful personal injury lawyer is an important decision, as it can make the difference between a successful outcome and an unsuccessful outcome. This information is provided to give you some helpful hints on choosing the wrongful death lawyer that is right for you.

What to avoid when you need to hire a wrongful death lawyer:

Many people do not know where to find a skilled and qualified attorney who can aggressively represent their case. The following are some common mistakes that people make when choosing their attorney:
  • Lawyer referral from a friend: People often have different legal situations from one another, requiring different attributes in an attorney, so a friend's lawyer may not be what you need to recover monetary compensation for your injuries.
  • Finding a Wrongful Death Lawyer in the yellow-pages: Yellow pages are impersonal and do not give you the background information that you need to hire a competent personal injury lawyer.
  • Choosing an injury lawyer because the office is local: Convenience should not be more significant than skill, professionalism, compassion, and the ability to effectively represent your case. You should find an attorney who has all of the qualities that are needed for a successful outcome in your case.
  • Choosing an inexperienced wrongful death lawyer: Your attorney should be up to date with current laws and cases regarding all areas of accident law. Your lawyer should have the knowledge to answer questions quickly and effortlessly.

How to Find and Choose the Right wrongful death lawyer

When you are involved in legal matters arising from a serious accident, you should hire an experienced attorney that you feel meets your needs. The personal injury lawyer that you choose should be a person that is experienced and that you feel comfortable with.

10 Questions to Ask a Wrongful Death Lawyer BEFORE Choosing

Hawaii wrongful death- Current News & Articles



The Hawaii Supreme Court recently upped the stakes for individuals knowingly participating in fraudulent transfers designed to leave the claims of creditors unsatisfied. In the case of Kekona v Borneman, Sup. Ct. No 29036, (Hawaii Civil No. 93-3974, April 24, 2015), the HSCt affirmed a civil judgment which awarded in excess of $250,000 in compensatory damages and in excess of $1,600,000 in punitive damages against a third party who willingly received real property from a debtor who was trying to defraud her creditors. The court considered (1) the expenses and delays of the litigation, (2) the level of the misconduct of the third party and (3) the third party's net worth in upholding the punitive damages award of over 6 times the compensatory damages. (The standard of proof required was 'clear and convincing evidence').
