An unfortunate reality of losing a loved one in a construction accident is that there is a statute of limitations on filing a claim. A statute of limitations is a cutoff date, after which you can no longer pursue a claim. The truly difficult part is that while you may be deeply grieving, your opportunity to hold the responsible parties accountable for the loss of your loved one may be slipping away. In some instances, the statute of limitations may be as short as 90 days.
We know that it may be incredibly difficult to contemplate taking action beyond caring for your loved ones after a fatal construction accident, but, if you do not take steps to preserve your right to pursue those responsible for your loss, you may lose the option.
