Helping West Virginia’s Workers

A wrongful death can happen in almost any industry, but these accidents are particularly prevalent in blue collar professions such as mining, trucking, utility services, and more. Because of the inherent dangers of working with heavy machinery, in enclosed or dangerous spaces, or with known toxic substances, companies in these industries must take extra precaution to protect their workers.

Regardless of the job, all companies have a duty to provide a safe workplace for their employees, which includes, but is not limited to:

  • Ensuring they comply with local and federal laws regarding work hours
  • Having emergency and safety procedures in place
  • Keeping equipment updated and in working order
  • Properly labeling potential dangers
  • Providing adequate security
  • Providing proper training

Common Causes of Workplace Deaths

Surviving families may seek compensation after the loss of a loved one against the wrongful party. This can include a first-party claim against an employer and their insurance company or a third-party claim if someone who is not your employer caused the accident. This includes manufacturers of faulty equipment, drivers in accidents that occurred while on the job, property owners for unsafe or negligent conditions, and more.

A family may also pursue a lawsuit for occupational diseases that lead to death. This can include working with cancer-causing chemicals for a prolonged period of time without proper precautions, coal miners diagnosed with “black lung” or diseases related to their work, and other instances of toxic exposure that led to death.
