Wrongful death can occur in what may seem like normal situations, especially if the victim is young and active. It is not always about doctors making a mistake or catastrophic car accidents. Some wrongful death cases happen unexpectedly while doing everyday activities, but somehow negligence occurs. Now there is an injured or in severe cases, deceased victim who, if not for this act of negligence would still be living their lives like they are used to.

A few years ago, there was a high school football player who made it as a redshirt freshman onto his number one choice college team. He was ecstatic just be among the ranks of the college team he grew up watching. His dream had come true. It was summer, so he had to report to football camp. It did not matter that he did not get to spend the break with his buddies, football camp was going to pay off in a major way. As they started to work out, however, he felt a bit dizzy. He was not used to the heat. The coach yelled at him to “keep going!” He did not want to disappoint his coach or show that he was “weak,” so he pressed on. Eventually, he asked the coach to take a break because he felt really bad. The coach’s response – “This is how it feels in the middle of battle!” He begged once again for a break but was denied.
Later that night, he was found by his roommate, unresponsive. They called the paramedics who rushed him to the hospital, where he passed away a few hours later. He had suffered severe heat stroke and dehydration. Being pushed by the coach did not make things any better. Naturally, the parents were furious, sad, in denial and bitter toward the events that led up to their son’s death. His dream died with him. After the initial shock, they contacted a powerful wrongful death attorney in Hawaii who got them a sizable settlement. But no amount of money will ever bring their son back. The university then put in place extra measures to make sure student athletes stay well-hydrated and are not “abused” physically while training. As for the coach, he was let go.
