The death of a loved one is normally painful and disorienting to family members even when it is expected. Loss of a close family member in a workplace accident or other type of unexpected fatality is especially shocking and difficult to cope with. A sudden change in the family is accompanied by financial stresses and questions of "Why?" and "What if?"
An experienced wrongful death lawyer can be a valuable source of help to a family after a fatal accident. Did you suffer the loss of your husband, wife, father or mother because of a work-related Scranton or Wilkes-Barre electrocution injury? Lawyers at Rosenn, Jenkins & Greenwald LLP are ready to answer your urgent questions now, with no fees for the initial consultation and no further obligation. It is important for you to feel comfortable with the law firm that you select to represent your family's interests at this difficult time.
We are sensitive to a family's need to grieve. We also understand the real monetary and emotional losses that you are likely incurring, including:
Rosenn, Jenkins & Greenwald LLP, can help you uncover and tap into all available sources of compensation after an electrocution. If your deceased loved one died in a workplace accident, you will most likely be able to collect death benefits fairly soon through a workers' compensation claim. There may be other types of accidental insurance that can help your family fairly quickly.
In addition, however, there may be less-than-obvious sources of compensation. There may be a viable product liability claim against a manufacturer or installer of faulty wiring. If water was the conduit for the electric shock that killed your loved one, a detailed investigation may be necessary to discover who was responsible for the flooding or leak and the exposure of electrical components. If your husband, father or son was electrocuted while repairing electrical or telephone wires in a cherry picker or bucket truck, workplace safety policies and procedures should be carefully examined to discover whose negligence caused the fatal shock.
