Dedicated Wrongful Death Lawyer Serving Honolulu, Hawaii

Helping families in a tragic time of loss

At the Law Office of James J. Stone, we strongly believe negligent parties must be held responsible when they have caused the death of another. We are zealous advocates dedicated to ensuring you receive the maximum compensation possible for your loss — not only to help your family move forward, but also to punish negligent individuals and companies for their actions. The Law Office of James J. Stone has more than 30 years of experience representing survivors in lawsuits.

Pursuing damages

Prompt action is critical to obtaining damages after the death of a family member. Under Hawaii law, you have a limited period of time to file a wrongful death suit. We are well versed in the courtroom tactics the opposition uses in such trials to attempt to limit their liability, and we counter their arguments with carefully planned responses designed to protect your rights. We work hard to pursue compensation for:

  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

We can also help you recover damages for pain and suffering if your family member did not file a personal injury lawsuit prior to passing away.

Have a wealth of knowledge by your side

Attorney James J. Stone has an in-depth understanding of how to construct wrongful death lawsuits in Hawaii courts. We frequently work with private investigators and experts to establish liability, obtain testimonials from witnesses, collect and preserve evidence, and perform a myriad of other tasks to build a case on your behalf.

The Law Office of James J. Stone is prepared to pursue wrongful death lawsuits related to:

  • Auto accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Defective products
  • Lack of proper security
  • Mesothelioma
  • Medical malpractice
  • Birth injuries
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Slips and falls
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Assault
  • Murder
  • Aviation accidents

While we settle suits prior to going to court if doing so is likely to produce a favorable result, we do not hesitate to litigate cases when necessary.
