The US Census Bureau reported 4,383 work injuries resulting in death for 2012.  When an employee is killed on the job, workers’ compensation pays the deceased’s survivors for their loss.  The workers’ compensation lawyers of McCready Law has represented the families of those killed in workplace accidents.  Oftentimes, we can discover a third party case against another entity which results in a better recovery for the family.
