    I’m not in danger of being killed on the job, however the effect of standing on my feet 70+ hours a week is speeding me on the road to becoming crippled.
    So I’m SOL!

    When my father was killed on the job in 1986, current legislation stated that the families of the deceased could not sue the employer without forfeiting the right to predetermined compensation, unless it could be determined that the employer had purposely caused the death of the decedent. It also said that if the company had declared bankruptcy within the previous five years, they were not liable for paying out any predetermined compensation. In short, since my father had company guaranteed double indemnity life insurance, a 401k through the company, and a matching pension through the company, which had just declared bankruptcy to avoid shareholder cuts, my family received $0 upon his death, with no legal recourse.
    I’m not sure how the law has changed since, but I have always had third party insurance and savings funds.
