Because construction accidents are a type of workplace accident, there are special considerations that need to be accounted for, making these cases more complicated than other wrongful death cases.
Bringing a wrongful death lawsuit is typically reserved for close family members. In Washington, this includes the following relatives of the deceased:
Parents and siblings can also sue in certain situations. To find out if you qualify, speak with a Spokane construction accident wrongful death lawyer.
Someone else needs to have been responsible for the accident in order for you to have a case. To determine negligence, we will investigate the accident and perform all of the following tasks:
The information gathered will help us identify if the employer or a third party was negligent and therefore responsible for your family member’s wrongful death. If more than one party was to blame, such as the employer and an equipment manufacturer, we can name both in your lawsuit.
The value of your wrongful death claim will be partly based on tangible factors like lost wages, medical bills, and accident-related expenses.
For example, if your loved one passed at age forty and made $70,000 per year, we would multiply these wages by the number of years left until reaching retirement age. This number can then be increased by calculating likely wage increases.
Lost benefits, retirement income, and other financial contributions will be included in these calculations as well. Direct expenses such as medical bills, funeral costs, and caregiver expenses will be factored in to reach an estimated claim value.
Your settlement should also include compensation for your family’s pain and suffering and the lost companionship and guidance that your family member’s death has caused.
