The family of a 27 year old Madison County woman who was killed in an explosion at a fireworks factory last February has filed a wrongful death suit against the factory owners and several other related parties.
The woman was one of two workers killed when the explosion happened. Four other factory workers were also injured in the blast. Investigations by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Alabama Fire Marshal’s Office forced the closure of parts of the factory due to safety violations.
The factory, operated by Ultratec Special Effects, has been cited for several safety violations in the past.
If you have suffered the loss of a loved one in a work-related accident, you may be entitled to compensation for certain wrongful death damages. These can include:
- Medical bills related to the accident
- Pain and suffering of the deceased before they died
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of future income
- Loss of future benefits, such as medical and retirement benefits
- Loss of companionship, affection, guidance, love, and consortium, etc.
- Loss of household duties performed by the deceased (child care, chores, etc.)
While no amount of financial compensation can replace the loved one you’ve lost, a wrongful death settlement can help you recover certain losses and move on with your life.
