Comprehensive legal services are provided by Oldham & Smith to assist those who have been injured in an accident, and to families who have lost a loved one in a fatal accident.
In 2011, more than 759 workers were killed in construction accidents, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Many of these accidents involved mistakes that should have been avoided. Although a construction company may try to take the stance that they are not at fault, if OSHA determines that there was negligence, or unsafe working conditions, the company will face fines and penalties. If OSHA issues any type of penalty, you may have viable reason to file a wrongful death claim.
Families of victims have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit for the loss of their loved one, and as Tavares’ wrongful death attorneys, we are tenacious in pursuing justice for our clients. We are here to ensure that you receive the quality of legal expertise you should expect from wrongful death attorneys.
