We are sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one in a workplace accident. Dealing with a death is never easy, but when you also need financial assistance for medical bills, loss of income, and other damages, figuring out who is responsible for paying can feel like an overwhelming task.
The first thing you will want to do is secure the services of an experienced work-related death attorney, like Tom Hall, because your lawyer will be able to look at your unique case and figure out who needs to be held accountable for causing your family so much pain.
Your case will probably require a little bit of investigation on the part of your attorney to determine who was at-fault for the accident that killed your loved on. There can sometimes be many layers to a wrongful death case and it's not always the fault of one individual person or company. For example, with a construction accident wrongful death case, your lawyer may find that fault lies with:
- The construction site owner
- Another construction worker
- The contractor
- An employer
- An equipment manufacturer who made a defective tool or piece of construction equipment
Before you are sure who caused your loved one's death, do not go out and accuse anyone of anything. It is in your best interest to speak with an attorney first to avoid any additional trouble.
