What you should do immediately following the unfortunate death of a spouse due to a work or construction accident:

After such an incident, it is important that you contact a construction accident lawyer as soon as possible to determine the employer’s fault, if any. A wrongful death suit filed by a work injury lawyer can ensure that the company or negligent parties are held responsible.

Before choosing a lawyer, be sure to find one that is well experienced in work injury and construction site accidents and deaths.

If you choose to wait too long before hiring a lawyer and filing a wrongful death suit, keep in mind that many states have a statute of limitations on how long after an accident you are allowed to file.
