When a spouse, child, or parent dies on the job, the process of filing a wrongful death lawsuit can seem like a daunting one. Indeed, there are several obstacles to overcome. The employer will likely have his or her own legal team that will try to pin the blame on the worker. The burden is on the survivor to prove there was negligence and that the accident was not due to an inherent risk of the job. In addition, survivors usually have a limited amount of time to file a case before the statute of limitations expires.

It is crucial for the survivor to enlist the help of a lawyer as soon as possible. Our legal professionals at Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP can help you determine the types of wrongful death damages you should seek and analyze the strength of your case, and provide complimentary initial consultations and evaluations if you are in the San Jose area. We can help you decide on your best course of legal action after the tragic loss of a loved one at work.
