Charleston Fatal Work Accident Attorney

The number of fatal workplace accidents has been decreasing every year across the United States for several decades. In spite of that, in 2011 alone, 81 workers perished on the job in South Carolina, according to numbers of the U.S. Department of Labor.

The causes for these fatal on-the-job accidents include:

  • Violence and other injuries by persons or animals
  • Transportation incidents
  • Fires and explosions
  • Falls, slips and trips
  • Exposure to harmful substances or environments
  • Contact with objects and equipment

If your family member or loved one is one of those 81 workers who died in 2011, you may have only until 2013 to file for a claim of death benefits under South Carolina's workers' compensation system. If you lost a loved one to a work injury more recently, keep in mind that you may have only two years to file your claim.

Tanenbaum, we are here for you. We represent family members for Workers' Compensation Death Benefits in Charleston and throughout the state of South Carolina.
