If your child has died due to the negligence of someone or some party, then our Wrongful Death Attorneys in Seattle are here for you.

Tragic Loss

Giving teens the right to drive is so hard. As a parent, all you want to do is protect them from all the other crazy drivers. You expect a few fender benders, but what parents don’t expect is a complete collapse of a construction. It was Saturday afternoon when a crane collapsed on a construction site falling onto six cars. Of those six cars, a college freshman who planned on majoring in nursing was killed. She had plans to become a neonatal nurse. Others who died were the crane construction workers. Others were injured and sustained their injuries.

The investigation is still pending. No one knows as of now what happened. The tragedy took the life of a daughter who was ready to start her new life in college. As a parent, this is one of your worst nightmares. You expect an accident, but you don’t expect a tragedy. The construction site was next to a bustling traffic area. It was an accident, but the investigation will prove whether it was avoidable or not.
