What are the common injuries you see from construction site accidents?

How does a wrongful death claim work?
When your loved one dies, awards are paid to the estate and distributed
in accordance with their will. If no will is available, the award is then
distributed according to state intestacy statutes. To potentially increase
the chances of receiving full compensation, we highly recommend filing
your wrongful death claim immediately after the incident. There is a strict
statute of limitations for filing a claim, but our personal injury attorney
can help you file your claim successfully.
What compensation may I be entitled to?
From a personal injury case, you may be compensated for your medical expenses,
lost work time, reduced earning capability, property damage, and pain
and suffering. In wrongful death cases, you may also be granted compensation
for financial support, mental and emotional distress, and loss of companionship.

Attorney Haugen has his M.S. from USC and J.D. from Texas Wesleyan School
of Law. In addition, he was a former U.S. Army Captain and 1984 graduate
