Wrongful Death Claim Regardless of Workers' Compensation Coverage

Employers nationwide, including here in Texas, must protect the health and safety of their employees. Their responsibilities include compliance with federal and state safety standards including but not limited to OSHA. Even if an employer has workers' compensation coverage, if an employee dies due to an employer's gross negligence, the surviving family members may pursue financial relief by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.  

Lawsuit filed after detainee dies in detention center

It might be assumed by many in Houston that when a person is taken into police custody, many of their rights are forfeited until their cases can be heard at an arraignment. Yet that is simply not the case. Even in matters related to their arrests, a defendant has the right to seek counsel from a legal or psychological professional and health care treatment if it is needed. In cases involving the latter, needed care should be rendered before a person is even taken in by authorities to be detained. That way any medical issues that they may be suffering from can be addressed to ensure that they are healthy enough to go into police custody.
