Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys understand that construction sites can be very dangerous places. Our personal injury attorneys know there are holes in the ground, uneven surfaces, tall buildings, the possibility of falling objects, scattered nails and objects on the ground, inadequate security, heavy equipment, and many more dangerous conditions. Wrongful death from construction accidents occur because these conditions create a strong possibility for fatal accidents to both construction workers and to unsuspecting passers-by. When this happens, the patient’s family has the right to pursue a wrongful death action against those responsible for the fatal accident.
It is important to contact an attorney right away if you have lost a loved one in a construction accident. The nature of a construction site is that it is constantly changing, and it is important that the site is investigated, observed, and photographed in the same condition that it was in when the accident occurred. Property owners may try to fix or cover up the dangerous condition that caused the accident, or it may be eliminated on its own as part of the original construction plans. That is why you need an attorney who will work quickly and efficiently to ensure you have the strongest case possible.
