Maui Fire Lawsuits
On August 8, 2023, destructive wildfires broke out in Maui, Hawaii, leaving thousands without power for days, taking more than 100 lives, and reducing many areas to ash. Hawaii Governor Josh Green described the wildfires as likely the “largest natural disaster in Hawaii’s state history.” Officials, residents, and emergency response crews continue their courageous efforts to contain the wildfires and begin cleanup efforts, but the investigation into what caused the Maui fires is still ongoing.
Our firm has decades of experience in litigation and has an arsenal of resources to conduct independent investigations of our own and maximize the monetary recovery for our clients. We have teamed up with local Hawaii law firms Lowenthal & Lowenthal and Rufo Law Group.
Matthews & Associates is prepared to fight for Maui fire victims to get top dollar recovery for their losses.
