Workers' compensation claims possible after fatal accident

There is no doubt that some jobs are more dangerous than others. A tragic accident on a recent Thursday in June makes one aware of the dangers faced by construction workers working on California roads. The death of two road workers leaves the families with a choice to file workers' compensation claims.

The two workers were killed by a vehicle driven by a driver allegedly under the influence of alcohol. The accident happened shortly before 8:50 p.m. on a Thursday evening. It is reported that the road workers' pickup truck was parked in the bike lane with the two victims next to the truck. The drunk driver struck the pickup truck and killed both workers.

The driver remained on the accident scene where he was subsequently arrested. The driver was still locked up the following day with bail set at $1 million. The idea that the driver may face criminal charges does not offer much relief for the two families who may have lost their only breadwinner.

California road workers work under very dangerous circumstances. While employers can try and make working conditions as safe as possible, these workers are always at the mercy of the road users and their respect, or lack thereof, for road signs that request caution due to road work. The families of these deceased California road workers killed in this on-the-job accident may choose to file for workers' compensation death benefits. These death benefits, when awarded in a successful workers' compensation claim, may assist surviving families in dealing with many of the expenses that result from these types of tragedies, such as funeral costs and loss of income.
