Workplace Accident Death Claims Lawyer
Without question, when a loved one loses their life in a workplace accident, families are devastated, as they have lost a loved one as well as a provider. Thus, the emotional trauma paired with the stress and worry over finances is enormously difficult to cope with.
Under federal and state law in South Carolina, employers are required to provide their employees with a safe and healthy workplace that is free of hazards that may cause injuries, illness or death. While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) conducts regular inspections of businesses, however, accidents continue to happen, and some lead to death.
That’s why it’s important to contact the workplace accident death claims attorneys at Wern Lawyers if your loved one has died while performing their job. As experienced personal injury and workers’ compensation lawyers, our team can help your family obtain justice and the compensation you need under applicable laws for your case.

Call Wern Lawyers If Your Loved One Has Died On The Job
If your family member or loved one has died in a workplace accident, the right to recover compensation is based upon who was involved. While workers’ compensation generally provides a death benefit for funeral expenses, as well as a weekly benefit for beneficiaries, it’s important to contact an experienced workplace accident death claims lawyer. This is because additional compensation may be recovered through a third-party claim.
For instance, if a subcontractor dies on the job, there are a number of others that might be considered liable for the incident that led to their death. These include general contractors, property owners and perhaps the manufacturer and distributor of defective equipment.
If a family member or someone that you love has died in an accident on the job, the workplace accident death claims attorneys at Wern Lawyers welcome your call.
