He was 30 and was his daughters boyfriend. He had a Bad criminal record. We have no knowledge of an estate but he did work for a construction company (union) and may have a life insurance .
Hello again and thank you for that information. Although your son can file suit against this person's estate, if they don't have much by way of assets, his recovery may be limited. Life insurance is not part of an estate, so normally that would not be included in assets of the estate and determining whether it has any assets to attach. But, he still will want to sit down with a local personal injury attorney as soon as possible and discuss filing suit against this man's estate. At least he should try to and see what he might be able to recover.That said, there is no individual that would be responsible for this (other than the person who did it) and his work wouldn't be responsible unless the guy was working when he assaulted your son. In that case, your son might be able to file suit against the employer.If he had been under 18 and had a history, then his parents could have been sued. But, in this case, that is not an option.Please let me know if you need any clarification.
