A preliminary total of 4,609 fatal work injuries were recorded in the United States in 2011, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. A workplace injury is any injury that occurs ‘in the course of work’, meaning during the course of carrying on an economic activity or business for an employer (even if the accident happens off the company’s premises, or is caused by a third party). Often times these workplace injuries can be fatal, and when they are, you and your family may be entitled to damages. These damages can include medical expenses, future wages, pain and suffering, and future earnings. You may also be entitled to damages for loss of companionship, protection, and social standing.
