How do I Handle the Wrongful Death of a Loved One in the Workplace?
Meta Description: Personal injury lawyer Shane Smith discusses workplace-related wrongful death claims and how loved ones may recover for their loss.
For many of us, the workplace is like our second home. After where we live, we spend more time at work than anywhere else. Because of the vast amount of time we spend at the workplace and the nature of many of our jobs, the chances of suffering a workplace-related accident can be high. Also, unfortunately, many times workplace-related injuries can be serious, even fatal. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were approximately 4,383 fatal occupational injuries in 2012. When a death occurs due to an unsafe working environment, inadequate safety instruction, faulty or defective equipment, or the negligence of an individual or company, the families of the victim may be able to receive compensation by bringing a Georgia wrongful death claim. If you have lost a loved one due to a fatal workplace-related injury, the best way to get the compensation you deserve is to schedule a consultation with an experienced Coweta County wrongful death attorney from the Law Offices of Shane Smith as soon as possible.
What About Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation is a way for workers to recover for injuries sustained on the job and for families of workers to recover if their loved one suffers a fatal accident in certain circumstances. However, generally, there are limits to workers’ compensation that may affect the types of claims you can file and/or the compensation you can receive after the wrongful death of a loved one in a workplace-related accident. Due to the complicated nature of wrongful death from an accident at the workplace, it is important you contact the experienced wrongful death attorneys at the Law Offices of Shane Smith. They can analyze your case and make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
