Wrongful Death of 43 Year Old Fork Lift Driver: Wife and Children To Receive $5,000,000

The personal injury attorneys at Lipkin & Apter were contacted by the widow of a man who had died in a work-related occurrence. IH, a 43-year-old man born in Mexico, came to the US seeking a better life. After a few years working at McDonald's, IH went to a day labor service and was contracted out as a forklift driver to a large food processing company in suburban Chicago. While IH was inside a trailer, a truck driver attached a tractor to it and pulled away from the dock, causing him to fall from the open back of the trailer, to his death. After multiple on-site investigations, viewing surveillance video from inside/outside the dock, reviewing records of the medical examiner, local police and OSHA, we filed a wrongful death suit against 3 defendants. The defendants requested that the wrongful death case goes to mediation, which took 9 hours. After the mediation, the defendants offered, and IH's widow accepted, $5,000,000 to settle the wrongful death case.
