What if the wrongful death happened at work? Is there someone who can be sued?

When there’s a wrongful death at work, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s only a worker’s compensation case. If it happened at work, one thing is certain, it’s going to be a worker’s compensation case, but does that mean that there’s nobody that could be sued? Absolutely not. If the death was caused by somebody besides the employer, then the person who caused the death at the company that caused the death is going to be accountable for all of the harm that was done. Under those circumstances, would it be a worker’s comp case? Yes. Would it, also, be a wrongful death case? Yes. Why? Because the worker’s comp, the employer, and the person who caused the wrongful death, that’s two different people.
