Boise Construction Accident Wrongful Death Lawyer
CASE EVALUATIONS ARE FAST, EASY, AND FREE.
A Boise construction accident wrongful death lawyer can help you determine if your family could receive compensation after losing a family member in a workplace accident.
Without a doubt, losing a loved one is the most difficult experience that anyone can experience. When a loved dies due to the negligence of another, the pain is even more profound and devastating.
When a construction worker is killed because of someone else’s wrongdoing, the family members of the victim are entitled to financial compensation for their loss in relation to the financial dependence the surviving family had on the victim.
If you have lost a loved one in a construction accident, it’s crucial to seek the advice of a Boise construction accident wrongful death lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates. We have the experience to secure the benefits and compensation your family is entitled to.
When a construction worker is killed on the job, Idaho’s wrongful death statute allows the victim’s heirs to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party. The heirs Idaho recognizes includes the following relatives of the victim:
In addition, Idaho also allows any blood relatives that are partly or wholly financially dependent on the victim to file a claim, as well as the personal representative of the deceased’s estate.
Wrongful death cases are complex and deserve the detailed attention of a Boise construction accident wrongful death lawyer. The damages recoverable for wrongful death differ to some extent from other personal injury lawsuits.
Wrongful death cases focus on the loss of both the relationship and the financial support experienced by the surviving members of the victim’s family. However, Idaho law does not allow for the recovery of compensation for pain and suffering suffered by the victim prior to death or for any grief suffered by the family members as a result of the death.
Damages that are recoverable for a victim’s family include economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are damages that have an obvious monetary value, which may include any of the following:
Economic damages are not capped at any amount; however, non-economic damages in Idaho are limited to no more than $250,000 per family member for all claims related to the death of a loved one.
Non-economic damages in a wrongful death suit may include the following:
