Negligent individuals and companies that create hazardous settings need to be held accountable if their negligence caused a serious injury. The Law Offices of Scot Stuart Brower in Honolulu, Hawaii, has handled many personal injury cases to ensure that our clients are compensated for their injuries or loss suffered through another party's negligence.
Personal injury attorney Scot Stuart Brower serves as an appointed arbitrator for personal injury cases. That experience provides him with a thorough knowledge of that practice area, and hands-on experience in resolving complicated personal injury lawsuits. Along with representing clients involved in motor vehicle accidents, we also handle premises liability and wrongful death cases. Our clients suffer from varying degrees of injuries, from soft-tissue damage to serious injuries such as brain trauma and spinal cord injuries.
Land or building owners have a duty to act reasonably concerning their property. If they know of something that presents a risk of danger to another, they have an obligation to correct it and prevent the possibility of slip and fall injuries. Even if they should have known about a certain hazard, they are responsible if someone suffers injuries. Even a trespasser has a right to safety in a personal injury case.
At the Law Offices of Scot Stuart Brower, we file wrongful death claims on behalf of surviving family members who lost a loved one in a tragic and avoidable accident. Those claims involve many pedestrians struck and killed by automobiles. The same principles of negligence apply in a wrongful death case as would in any personal injury matter. Our firm will investigate whether the individual who caused the harm acted unreasonably and, if so, will seek to hold him or her responsible for negligence. While monetary damages for another's negligence can of course never compensate for the death of a family member, they can help to offset lost wages and to provide some comfort for pain and suffering endured by the survivors.
