Wildfires Ravage Maui

What Happened?

On August 8, 2023, a devastating fire swept through the former Hawaiian Kingdom capital, causing immense destruction. Thousands are displaced, hundreds of homes are destroyed, and many have died.

Who Are We After?

Mikal Watts is lead attorney in a suit filed against Hawaiian Electric. The suit alleges Hawaiian Electric helped set the stage for the disastrous wildfires through years of inaction and negligence.

Why Do We Fight?

Watts says “Hawaiian Electric is not just responsible and they weren’t just negligent. They were grossly negligent by making conscious decisions to delay grid modernization projects that would have prevented this very tragedy”.

Maui Wildfire FAQs

Watts LLC is not filing a class action lawsuit for this litigation. We are filing what is called mass tort litigation. Mass tort litigation, unlike a class action lawsuit, treats each individual claim differently. After a catastrophe such as this, different individuals will sustain different types of damages. Mass tort litigation allows a group of people to band together to prove liability by the defendant, and then each individual will have their own unique claim for damages suffered.
We are open to discussing the lawsuit related to the Maui fire with anyone impacted. This encompasses residents, workers, those who sustained property or business damage, individuals injured by the fire, and those mourning the loss of a loved one from this tragic event.
If you're in a position to do so, consider capturing evidence of the destruction using your cell phone or camera, and document any losses to your residence or business. This documentation can prove vital for both insurance and potential litigation claims.
Our firm will handle all litigation costs against the responsible parties. If there's no recovery, you owe us nothing. Not all law firms can bear the substantial expenses of challenging major power utility companies. Our firm is equipped and willing to heavily invest in our clients' cases.
