You have rights after a loved one's fatal workplace accident

Texans know what it means to work hard and to do a job right. Every day many residents leave their homes to go to their places of employment so that they may perform their job responsibilities and earn the wages they need to support the people they love. Most workers are able to do what is asked of them by their employers without putting themselves in harm's way. Others are subjected to workplace dangers that can put them at risk of injuries and death.

When a workplace accident occurs, the injured person often has legal recourse against their employer for the losses they had to endure. However, when a worker dies due to a work-related incident, it may seem as though their legal rights die with them. Although every case is different and should be reviewed by a personal injury attorney, some family members of victims of fatal workplace accidents can seek compensation for their losses through wrongful death lawsuits.

Under the law, a wrongful death generally occurs when the negligence of another party leads to the death of a victim. When a fatal workplace accident occurs, it is often the fault of the employer and their failure to provide reasonably safe working conditions for their employees led to the tragic loss of life.

While there is no legal remedy for bringing back a deceased loved one, a wrongful death lawsuit can be an effective way for a family to be compensated for the financial losses they had to take on after their loved one perished on the job. The Law Offices of Chris Petitt & Associates, located in San Antonio, is prepared to meet with new wrongful death clients and advise them of their right to seek damages from the employers that caused their loved ones' deaths.
