Fatal Workplace Accidents
If a family member was killed in a workplace accident, you may be entitled to death benefits under your employer’s Workers’ Compensation insurance coverage. Such benefits can even include funeral and burial expenses, and benefits for dependents. In addition to fatal accidents, work-related deaths also include fatalities resulting from complications of injuries, such as infection and organ failure, and occupational diseases, including toxic exposures leading to cancer or lung failure. Since death may not occur immediately after an accident or injury, it is important to have a skilled attorney, such as the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation lawyers of PearsonKoutcher, LLP, who will prove the connection between the on-the-job accident or injury and the subsequent death.
