Have You Lost A Loved One Due To Exposure To COVID-19 In The Workplace?
COVID-19 has changed the way we do almost everything. Even with countless measures put in place to stop the spread of the virus, there is still the potential for some to be at risk of exposure while in the workplace.
In some circumstances, people are being asked to work alongside others who are known to be infected with COVID-19. Other workers may have not been provided the proper personal protective equipment needed to help prevent exposure to the potentially deadly virus. If you have a family member who has been subjected to such conditions in the workplace, it’s possible that the employer’s negligence has played a critical role in the decline of your loved one’s health.
What Responsibilities Do Employers Have To Keep You Safe?
Companies in Texas and across the United States must take “reasonable measures” to protect their workers, and also follow all rules and regulations put in place by state or local officials. Those that fail to do so could potentially be subject to lawsuits, which may include wrongful death for families who have lost loved ones as a result of this negligence.
The attorneys at The Buzbee Law Firm have already filed lawsuits against businesses, corporations and their owners who have placed workers in harm’s way on behalf of families who have lost loved ones due to these unsafe acts.
