If your husband was working at the time of the accident, you do have a workers' compensation claim against the employer. If you believe the employer was negligent in some way, then you may also have a personal injury claim against the employer. You should find an attorney who knows about both of those areas so that you have a full picture of what your options are. I would be more than happy to discuss it with you.
That is a good question. You probably need to discuss this with a lawyer. I'll be happy to discuss this with you. If he was an independent contractor and if the employer was negligent in maintaining the truck, then he might have a claim.

Workers compensation covers workplace injuries. I need a little more information on the circumstances of the death before I can fully advise you about your rights. Please feel free to call me at 828-505-4300. Perry Fisher.
