Galveston County and Houston Wrongful Death Attorney for Fatal Work Accidents
We have recovered damages for wrongful death across a wide range of industries:
- Construction site accidents, including scaffolding accidents
- Oil refinery accidents such as a fatal explosion
- Industrial plant and warehouse accidents
- Crane and heavy equipment accidents
- Train-related deaths at shipping ports
- Commercial drivers killed in collisions or loading accidents
- Seamen and longshoremen killed at sea or on the docks
The employer is responsible for workers’ comp death benefits to the surviving spouse and dependent children, but there may be other claims to provide increased compensation for the profound loss of a loved one.
An employer can sometimes be sued for a work-related death if the management was grossly negligent in failing to provide a safe work environment.
Many wrongful death claims involve negligence of third parties not in the direct line of employment: subcontractors on the same work site, manufacturers of defective machinery, motorists who caused an on-the-job vehicle accident or property owners and property management firms whose negligence created safety hazards.
