You can fight for compensation after a loved one's death

You shouldn't have to worry about getting hurt at work, but it's always a possibility. Some workplaces are inherently dangerous, and others could be left in a hazardous condition, putting your welfare at risk. While no one wants to consider the potential for a fatal injury at work, it's certainly possible. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that there were around 5,657 workplace fatalities in 2007, and that means that there were thousands of families who were left to deal with the loss of a loved one.

As a victim of a wrongful death that has affected your family, there's no amount of compensation that's going to replace the loss of your loved one. While no amount of financial compensation can make up for the loss, it can be beneficial in helping you replace lost wages and pay down debts accrued due to medical needs or other financial impacts.

Over one out of every five workplace fatalities takes place in the construction field, because heavy machinery, power tools, and other equipment can become dangerous or malfunction. These construction sites can be hazardous and have a potential for slips, falls, or falling objects that can kill.

Most of the time, work sites are kept as safe as possible for the employees there, but if safety procedures aren't followed or careless mistakes are made, it's possible that you could find negligence or distractions as the cause of a serious accident. Our website has more information on what to do if you've lost a loved one in a negligent situation in a dangerous workplace.
