Florida has high rate of workplace death

When a Florida resident goes to work each day, they expect they will return home each night. Most of the time this is true, but occasionally a fatal workplace accident occurs that results in a family losing a beloved relative.

Florida has a large number of fatal workplace accidents. Even though the rate of these accidents has declined across the United States, Florida still has a rate of fatal workplace accidents that is increasing. In 2015, 272 workers in Florida died on the job. When these deaths are investigated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, they often reveal safety precautions that should have been taken by the employer. These accidents have occurred on road construction projects, in warehouses and at amusement parks, along with other places of employment.

When a person is injured or killed at work, the victim's family wonders what happened. These accidents are often preventable with the proper safety measures put in place. A personal injury attorney can help a family who is going through this stressful and emotional time. An attorney can review the circumstances surrounding the accident and help figure out who is at fault. A family may be facing astronomical medical bills, funeral expenses and lost wages. Compensation may be available to help these families with their tremendous loss, funeral costs and other expenses for years to come.

For those who are suffering the loss of a loved one due to another person's negligence, an attorney can help them with their wrongful death claim. A wrongful death claim can ensure a family has financial support both now and into the future.
