FATAL WORKPLACE ACCIDENTS

Fatal Workplace Accidents

Helping families who have lost a loved one in a workplace accident

At the Law Firm of Walter Hundley, we understand how tragic it is to unexpectedly lose a spouse, parent or other family member in a workplace accident. Not only does such a tragedy cause you to suffer emotionally, but it also can result in significant financial hardship and concerns for your household. Your priority should be taking care of your family during this difficult time. For this reason, we focus on obtaining the benefits to which you are entitled under the laws of South Carolina Workers’ Compensation.

Fatal accidents happen in the workplace everyday

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 4,585 workers died in work-related accidents in 2013, which averages out to approximately 12 worker fatalities every day. Workplace fatalities commonly occur due to the following:

  • Traffic and motor vehicle-related accidents
  • Electrocutions
  • Falls
  • Equipment or machinery accidents

If a fatal workplace accident has affected your family, experienced workers’ compensation attorney, Walter Hundley, can help you obtain the benefits to which you are entitled.

Advocating for the death benefits you deserve

Spouses, children, and other dependents may be entitled to benefits under South Carolina workers’ compensation law.  Many individuals are not familiar with the laws of workers’ compensation. It is not uncommon for a workers’ compensation carrier to make a settlement offer in cases involving a fatality. However, it is important to have an experienced attorney review the claim prior to accepting a monetary settlement.
