If a family member was killed in a workplace accident, you, as the the surviving spouse and / or dependent children, may be entitled to death benefits under your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance coverage. Such workplace compensation 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 work injury, it is important to have a skilled work-related accident or workplace fatalities attorney, such as the Pennsylvania workers’ compensation lawyers of Pearson Koutcher Law, who will prove the connection between the on-the-job accident or work injury and the subsequent death.
