Legal Answers
Q. Is the death due to "complications of blunt force injuries of the head" considered to be an accidental death?
A: Aloha, blunt force trauma is exactly that - an injury caused by blunt force, whether applied intentionally by another person, or due to accidental circumstances. It is more a medical term than a legal term. It just describes the type of causation, not the state of mind of the individual inflicting that injury, if there is one. In other words, it is also possible for blunt force trauma to be caused by a falling tree branch, for example. I hope this answers your question, feel free to contact me should you have further questions. Sorry for your loss.
Q. Does a Federal crime override a state crime?
A: I am so sorry what your ohana is going through, especially around the holidays. Your father relied on the representation of a government official, to his detriment. If he is charged with a violation of the Order for Protection, he may have a defense if the offense was; 1) de minimis; or 2) he did not intend to violate the order. It will really turn on the facts and circumstances of the case. I sincerely wish for peace and healing for your family.
Q. If my tire was damaged while on Federal government property, can I get reimbursed for the cost of the tire?
A: Aloha, I would try to reach out to the entity upon whose premises your vehicle was damaged. For relatively small claims, such as a tire, the National Park Service, for example, will require you to complete a form asking for details if the incident. Typically, these kinds of claims are usually handled expeditiously and it is worth your time, and a few phone calls, to resolve the matter. Best of luck.
