Cate Powell and Amy Jones did an awesome job. I got more than expected from my case. They did not stop till everything was met. Montlick attorneys are the best.

Attorney Jason Saltzman and his assistant Kris Brown did an exceptional job working my case. From beginning to end they were very caring about my injuries and concerns. They responded to all my calls, text and emails in a timely fashion and never seem to have an issue with all my questions, and I had many. Because of their obvious honesty, I decided that I could trust them to handle my business and decided to utilize patience. Although there were times that I wondered what was going on, was convinced that they had my best interest in mind. Kris made sure that she requested any and all documents and information they needed and followed up with me if needed. I would recommend this team at Motlick and Associates to anyone who may find themself in a situation like mine and have to endure the pain, suffering and injuries that I endured. At the end of the day I believe they did the best they could on my behalf. Although I am still experiencing the after effects of my surgery. I fell a since of relief from the outcome my team was able to achieve. Thank you Attorney Saltzman and Kris Brown.

Caring, professional and thorough. They go above and beyond to make sure your well being is taken care of first. Both Douglas and Gia are a team that cannot be matched by any other firm. They call you within the first week to let you know they take their job very serious without any form of arrogance. Thank you for representing me and my child! I'm a client for life!

Fighting for Families of Wrongful Death Victims Nationwide 

What To Know About a Construction Wrongful Death Claim

A construction death claim may involve two cases pursued simultaneously: a workers’ compensation claim and a wrongful death claim against the negligent parties. 

Depending on applicable state law, construction accident victims might be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. In the event of a wrongful death from a construction or work injury, dependents may be able to pursue a separate personal injury claim against negligent individuals or companies who are responsible. The various legal systems are complex to navigate and can feel overwhelming to those who just lost a loved one.

Each case is different, so please call us at 1-800-LAW-NEED to take advantage of our free consultation.

What is a Wrongful Death Action?

If a family member suffers a wrongful death at the construction site caused by someone else’s negligence, our attorneys pursue all types of compensation to which our clients are entitled by law. In these situations, there may be one or a few negligent parties. These can include general contractors, subcontractors, construction site owners, equipment manufacturers and more.

When negligence wrongly robs someone of a loved one, our attorneys fight to recover the following types of damages, among others:

  • Past, present, and future medical expenses
  • Past, present, and future lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium (if applicable)
