There is nothing worse than getting a phone call informing you that there has been a serious accident at your spouse’s place of work and, tragically, he has been killed due to this accident. There are no words to express the pain that you will be feeling. It can seem impossible to pick up the pieces and accept this information. You will need time to grieve.

Who is to Blame?
Workplace injury lawsuits are complicated to say the least because worker’s compensation often protects the company from being sued if a death has occurred. However, there are many instances where a third party may be to blame for the accident:
- Defective product cases – if someone is killed due to a faulty product, then the manufacturer of the equipment or product can be held responsible for the accident
- Premise liability cases – if an employee is killed due to the unsafe conditions on a third party property, then the owner of that property may be held responsible for the accident
- Commercial truck accidents – if an employee is killed on the road in a vehicle accident, then the driver of the other vehicle may be responsible for the accident if he/she was driving negligently, drinking and driving, recklessly driving or speeding
