In the case of a fatal workplace injury, the surviving spouse and dependent children of the victim may be entitled to death benefits. Such benefits include funeral and burial expenses as well as continued wage loss benefits for dependents. These benefits may be payable not only for a fatal accident, but also in the case of a work-related death resulting from complications of an injury, such as infection and organ failure, and occupational diseases, including toxic exposures leading to cancer or lung failure.
