Work Place Injury Accident Lawsuits & Work Place Fatal Accident Lawsuits (Workers Comp, Responsible Third Party, and Nonsubscriber Law Suits)
It is estimated that over 6,800 workers per year are killed in on the job work related accidents. This does not include undocumented workers and many workers killed by toxic exposures, explosions, or unsafe working environments.
In Texas, some work related deaths fall under Texas workers compensation laws. In such instances, workers comp benefits are given to the dependants of the decedent and then the family of the decedent is prevented from filing a law suit against the employer. However, in these instances it is always a good idea to look for potential responsible third parties including making sure that the employer is actually the one paying the person's pay check and controlling the work place. In many situations an independent contractor, subcontractor, or other responsible third party may be responsible for the death of a worker. In these situations a law suit can be filed against the responsible third party to obtain money compensation from the responsible third party. If the employer does not have worker compensation insurance, the family of the worker can file suit directly against the employer for an accidental death of a loved one. These claims are called non-subscriber claims.
