The last thing you expect when your loved one goes off to work in the morning is that he or she will never return. Unfortunately, deaths due to work-related fatal accidents do sometimes occur. If your loved one was killed as the result of an injury that he or she sustained at work, attorney can help with a death claim.
When a worker dies, the employer’s insurance is supposed to cover burial expenses. Additionally, surviving dependents may be entitled to weekly benefits. Even if there were no primary dependents, partial benefits may be available to individuals who were in the care of the person who passed away.
