Fatal Workplace Accident Attorney in Atlanta
Causes of Fatal Accidents in the Workplace
Accidents in the workplace have a broad range of severity. Most accidents are minor, such as cuts and abrasions, and require no real medical care beyond basic first aid. Some are more serious, such as broken bones or minor head injuries, or may even be considered catastrophic, such as
traumatic brain injuries or
spinal cord injuries. The worst kind of workplace accident, however, is the kind that results in an employee's death. In such cases, an
Atlanta workers' compensation lawyer could help the accident victim's spouse and/or eligible dependents file for death benefits to compensate as much as possible for the accident.
Understanding Death Benefits in Atlanta
Nothing can ever truly compensate for the loss of a loved one. However, death benefits can help offset the financial stress involved with their passing. These benefits are paid in a weekly payment and are based off of a percentage of the deceased employee's wages. The burial of the employee is often covered by these benefits, as well. If you have lost a loved one in a workplace accident, don't hesitate to get legal help and file for these benefits before it is too late.
