On-the-job wrongful death cases are often complex, but we make the process as easy as possible
When a loved one dies after suffering an accident at work, there are numerous issues and challenges that family members must face. Employers are required to ensure that work environments are safe and must provide proper training and adhere to federal safety regulations. When someone else’s negligence causes the death of your family member, you may be entitled to receive compensation for
- Loss of consortium and companionship
- Lost wages and future earnings
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering and emotional distress
In addition to seeking compensation from an at-fault employer, you may be able to pursue legal action against a third party such as the manufacturer of a defective product. If you have questions about your legal options, it is important to seek the advice of an experienced workplace accident attorney as soon as possible. There are strict deadlines for filing wrongful death claims and our Philadelphia wrongful death attorneys make sure your case is handled expediently.
