Consider Your Legal Options After A Loved One's Fatal Work Accident

When a close relative dies in a work accident, the emotional and financial shocks are like an earthquake. You no doubt remember vividly the last time you saw the person you have lost - and may be haunted by that memory.

Emotional healing can only come with time. In the near term, however, it makes sense to focus on what you need to do to move forward. And one useful step there may be to get a better understanding of your legal options for seeking financial compensation from the party or parties responsible for the workplace death.

At Rhine Law Firm, P.C., we have decades of practical legal experience in helping grieving families do this. We invite you to talk with our Wilmington personal injury lawyers in no-cost consultation about your specific situation.

How Was Your Relative Killed?

No one goes to work expecting to be killed. But nationally, several thousand workers every year are killed on the job in accidents or due to workplace illnesses. According to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 5,147 such deaths in 2017.

Many of those deaths occur in the construction industry. Indeed, about 1 in 5 of the workplace fatalities in private industry is the result of a construction accident. Many of these accidents involve falls on construction sites.

Other causes of death at work include electrocutions, motor vehicle accidents and acts of violence.

Be Prepared To Assert Your Rights

What you need to know is that you may have legal options after losing a loved one to a fatal accident or illness at work. In particular, there is a legal procedure called wrongful death that allows a close family member to assert a claim for such losses in certain cases. Workers' compensation may also have benefits that are available to families of employees.

We encourage you to schedule a confidential consultation with a lawyer at our firm to get clarity about what your rights and options are. Call (910) 772-9960 or (866) 772-9960.
