Unfortunately, construction is an exceedingly dangerous vocation. Many people suffer injuries or even lose their lives on construction sites each year. Sadly, this can leave a family without their loved one, and it can put them in a dire financial situation as well. In some cases, these deaths are caused by the negligence or recklessness of the construction company, and they can be held liable for your loss.
If your loved one has been killed on a construction site and you believe that someone is responsible for his or her loss, you may be able to receive financial compensation for this wrongful death. We may be able to help. To learn more about wrongful death prosecution, contact the Minnesota wrongful death lawyers of Robert Wilson & Associates today. You can reach us at (612) 334-3444.
Negligence and Wrongful Death
Wrongful death is a type of civil claim in which the prosecution (usually a family member of the victim) asserts that another party is liable for the death of the victim. There are many ways that a construction company can be held responsible for the death of an employee. Some of the construction wrongful death cases we handle involve:
- Death caused by a breach of safety codes on the part of the company
- Failure to provide safety gear such as a harness
- The collapse of a faulty scaffolding or structure
- Negligence to properly prevent objects from falling
If you lost a loved one due to negligent behavior on a construction site, not only do you have to deal with the loss itself but also the financial repercussions of losing a family provider. This is unacceptable.
If you believe your loved one has been lost due to a wrongful death accident, you may be able to fight for the punitive damages or financial compensation that you and your family need to recover from this tragedy.
