Car accidents can have a huge impact on people’s lives. From a relatively minor collision that results in some fractures, bruising, and maybe a little damage to your car, to those catastrophic car accidents that lead to fatalities, every car accident leaves its mark. While those bruises might not look too serious to others, the emotional effects of car accidents can be much longer-lasting.
If you, or a loved one, has sustained catastrophic injuries in a car accident, you’ll be all too familiar with the medical bills, loss of wages, and other expenses associated with the experience. Of course, if the car accident in question was a fatal accident, and your loved one never made it home, the financial consequences will pale into insignificance – only they’re not insignificant, as you’ll need to pay them somehow.
After a fatal car accident in Hawaii, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death suit to recover the cost of medical bills, expenses, and the loss of companionship you’ve suffered since your loved one’s life was cut short. Not all survivors are entitled to file a wrongful death claim but, if you qualify, some of the damages you may be able to recover include:
