WHAT SHOULD SOMEONE DO IF A LOVED ONE IS KILLED IN A
If a wrongful death occurs at a construction site due to the
negligence of someone other than the worker's employer,
the surviving family members are entitled to compensation
from the party at fault. The decision to sue is not an easy
one, especially for someone who is mourning, but contacting
an attorney early is important in pursuing a wrongful death
An experienced construction accident attorney can help
provide the family with financial security and a sense of Q
justice for their loved one.
