Helping Maui Wildfire Victims: Your Right to Justice and Compensation
A Catastrophic Event:
- The recent devastating wildfires in Maui have left an indelible mark on the lives of countless residents. Lahaina, a picturesque and beautiful city, has been reduced to ashes with over 2,700 structures destroyed, causing both physical and emotional upheaval. Thousands have lost their homes, and the death toll, which currently stands at 96, is expected to rise. Our hearts go out to everyone affected, and as a plaintiff’s firm with extensive experience in disaster litigation, we are here to support and advocate for the rights of the victims.
Hawaiian Electric Industries Under Scrutiny:
Hawaiian Electric Industries, which supplies power to 95% of Hawaii’s residents, knowingly ignored severe weather warnings during the hurricane-force winds brought in by Hurricane Dora. While other utility companies in states like California, Oregon, and Nevada have adopted the tactic of cutting power under similar conditions to avoid wildfires, Hawaiian Electric Industries opted not to, which critics claim resulted in the Maui wildfire.
A History of Advocacy:
Our firm has a strong and proven track record in representing wildfire victims. We have successfully managed claims related to the PG&E Camp Fire and SCE Thomas Fire. Notably, we served as the bellwether in the SCE Thomas Fire case, leading the charge and setting precedents. Our expertise in these complex cases positions us uniquely to fight for Maui wildfire victims.
Hawaiian Electric Industries’ Alleged Negligence:
It is alleged that Hawaiian Electric Industries, the main power supplier for the state, ignored critical weather warnings during the powerful hurricane-force winds brought by Hurricane Dora. While utility companies in regions like California have adopted the practice of cutting power in similar conditions to prevent wildfires, this company’s decision to continue operations has come under intense scrutiny. Their alleged oversight and failure to take precautionary measures may have been pivotal in the outbreak and spread of the devastating Maui wildfires.
Financial Impact and Rebuilding:
The aftermath of the fire is not only about lost homes and irreplaceable personal items. It has vast economic implications. Residents and visitors face losses in the form of injuries during evacuation, loss of employment or wages, canceled flights, additional housing costs, and extensive property damage. FEMA has projected a staggering $5.5 billion to rebuild Lahaina. As the affected individuals attempt to rebuild their lives, financial support and compensation are crucial.
