In most cases, when an individual dies at his Kansas City workplace, the family can only claim damages under Missouri workers’ compensation laws. However, if the death was caused by the wrongdoing of someone other than the employer - for instance, a co-worker, a subcontractor, a defective product, or a client - the family of the victim may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the person or company that caused the death. Every case is unique, so in order to determine whether or not there is liability against someone other than the employer, contact the Kansas City workplace injury attorneys at Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys.
