When a Workplace Accident Takes the Life of a Loved One

Our Injury Attorneys Offer Options for Recovery

Lawyers That Handle Wrongful Death Cases from Workplace Accidents

The sudden death of a loved one has a profound effect on an entire family, both emotionally and financially. Medical bills may make lost wages even more difficult to handle, intensifying the hardship of losing a spouse or parent. In the midst of unforeseen challenges such as funeral arrangements, probate issues and the adjustment to the loss of life, survivors may find that dealing with mounting financial difficulties is simply too much. Knowing that a preventable workplace injury or construction accident caused your loved one’s death can make the suffering even worse. At McBride, Scicchitano & Leacox, P.A., we believe that negligent parties that cause deaths must be held responsible for the pain they inflict on families.

Find an Injury Attorney That Will Take Action to Ease the Burdens Placed Upon Your Family

The truth behind any fatal accident must be carefully researched, discovered and exposed so that the victim’s family can receive the best possible compensation available under the law. Civil litigation can also prevent such tragedies from happening to others in the future. Determining an award for negligent loss of life involves calculating the victim’s lifetime earning potential and, in some cases, estimating the value associated with the emotional trauma of a loved one’s death. Of course, there is no amount of money that could ever equal anyone’s life. Wrongful death compensation is society’s way of easing the financial burdens placed upon families, so they can concentrate on their emotional recovery. Compensation may be available for:

  • Medical and funeral expenses;
  • Lost past, present and future wages and income;
  • Loss of benefits from employment;
  • Lost expected inheritance;
  • Pain and suffering of the deceased before death;
  • Pain and suffering of the surviving family.
