Wrongful Death In The Workplace
Losing a loved one is one of the most painful experiences in life. Nothing can replace your spouse, parent, child, or sibling if he or she died in a work-related accident. But if you were financially dependent on your loved one, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits that can help you make ends meet.
At the Law Offices of Lester Friedman, we are committed to helping you obtain the benefits to which you are entitled for living expenses, burial costs, and other needs.
Prove That An Accident Was “Work-Related”
A common legal obstacle after a fatal accident is that a death was not sufficiently “work-related” to qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. If you have received this message from your loved one’s employers, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible. At the Law Offices of Lester Friedman, we will help you present the case that your loved one’s death was indeed related to his or her work.
Common types of fatal work-related accidents include:
- Transportation or roadway incidents
- Struck by object or equipment
- Falls, slips and trips
- Exposure to harmful substances or environments
- Fires and explosions
