Why fatal workplace accidents happen

Fatal accidents happen at work for many different reasons. In general, such accidents occur due to reckless or negligent behavior. Such actions can include:

  • Distracted workers
  • Impaired workers
  • Tired workers
  • Inexperienced workers
  • Untrained workers
  • Mechanical defects
  • Hazardous working conditions

How our lawyers can help you

You might think you don't need a lawyer if someone caused your loved one's fatal workplace accident. Their employer and insurance companies will take care of everything and your family will receive all the money you rightfully deserve.

Unfortunately, that's not always the case. Sometimes, employers dispute the circumstances surrounding the death of your loved one. They then use their version of what happened to justify paying your family less money. Insurance companies also often do everything they can to keep payments to your family to a minimum.

Your family deserves to be fairly compensated. Such compensation should include any medical expenses related to your loved one's workplace accident or illness, lost income and lost future income. All of these expenses often add up to hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars. This money can be a lifeline for many families after a fatal workplace accident. Make sure your family receives the compensation and closure you deserve. Schedule your free case evaluation today.
