June 6, 2011 | Recent Cases

Recently a regrettable fatal accident occurred to a man who went to work like most of us do every day and did not come home that evening. This working man died from crush injuries while doing welding and maintenance at one of the nation’s largest timber companies. One can only imagine how tough this situation is on his family that survives him.

Attorney Aaron Gartlan entered the picture to take action as quickly as possible. This is even more critical in lawsuits like that one that involved wrongful death. Why? Because if quick action is not taken by filing a lawsuit evidence may be missed, lost, memories fade or stories can change. This is even more critical in lawsuits like this one that involve wrongful death. Early filing of a lawsuit preserves the evidence so all aspects of the case are fully explored and developed to assure the family has a maximum recovery to get their lives back on track as best as possible under the circumstances.
