Can You File A Wrongful Death Claim?

There is no greater loss than losing a loved one. When that loss was due to a work accident, the grief is all the more painful. Holding employers accountable for fatal accidents through the workers' compensation system can help provide financially for the family a fatally injured worker has left behind.

The workers' compensation system provides a set amount of compensation for the spouse of a fatally injured worker and temporary disability for children until they reach 18 years of age or 19 if they are still in high school.

If Your Loved One's Death Was At All Related To An On-The-Job Injury, You May Be Able To Pursue Wrongful Death Benefits

These benefits are available to the loved ones of fatally injured workers even if the worker's death was not exclusively caused by an on-the-job injury. For example, a worker may have been prescribed pain medication for an injury. Years of use of that pain medication may have contributed to his or her death. That worker's family will still be entitled to pursue a workers' compensation wrongful death claim.
