Los Angeles Wrongful Death Lawyer

Have You Lost a Family Member in an Industrial Machinery Accident?

At Shoop Law we seek compensation for clients who have lost family members in industrialmachinery accidents.  We understand that this is a distressful time for the family and understand that the family may not want to put its attention on pursuing legal action.  Nevertheless it is noted that the family may need compensation in the future and it is important for us to be involved early to interview witnesses and collect evidence before it disappears.   It is therefore urged that families without delay contact an industrial machinery accident attorney in Los Angeles.

Wrongful Death Compensation 

Where an employee is killed on the job, the family may seek compensation in the courts for wrongful death.  This claim is based on proof of negligence or intentional misconduct by the defendant.  The damages include compensation to the family of funeral and burial expenses and loss of comfort and support.  In a companion suit, if the deceased survived the accident for at least a little while, compensation may be also sought in the name of the deceased's estate for medical expenses, property losses and pain and suffering.

A wrongful death claim may be made against the employer where the employer is guilty of intentional misconduct such as deliberately removing safety features from equipment.  Where the employer is merely negligent or innocent of wrongdoing, the family is limited to a Workers' Compensation claim, as far as the employer is concerned.  Workers' Comp claims however do not provide a realistic level of compensation.  Therefore it is advantageous to find a third party to sue for wrongful death.

Wrongful Death Attorney in Los Angeles - Actions against Third Parties

In addition to any Workers' Comp claim, the family may seek wrongful death compensation from third parties such as the manufacturer of defective machinery or another subcontractor on the worksite.  For instance if the worker is killed in a crane accident when the crane operator, working for another subcontractor, drops a load on him, the other subcontractor is liable.  At the firm we industriously investigate the accident to locate a responsible third party so that the family may have the wrongful death compensation it deserves.
