Fatal work-related accidents: legal help can make a difference

Every empathetic and reasonable person knows that virtually the sole and overriding focus of surviving family members in the wake of an injury or accident that takes a loved one's life is on grieving, family unity and generally dealing with the emotional aspects of that passing.

As complex and heart rending as that of course is, life does continue to go on for remaining family members, sometimes in an acutely challenging way owing to the loss of financial support that was previously provided by a family member who is no longer living.

It is not easy to think of money matters in the aftermath of a family death, and it is certainly true that recoverable benefits that can be collected following a loved one's passing can never compensate for the loss of that person.

Monetary compensation is the primary remedy available under American laws, though, for a work-related fatal injury or illness, and the benefits that can be collected by surviving members following an industrial wrongful death incident are often, in fact, tremendously important for promoting financial solvency and peace of mind.

The personal injury attorneys at the Southern California law firm of Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld (with multiple offices across the region) have long advocated with passion and great empathy on behalf of family members seeking to obtain the compensation and related benefits that they are legally entitled to following the death of a loved one in a work-related incident.

We strive for a maximum recovery in every case, knowing that owed compensation is often a valuable lifeline that pays for funeral expenses, medical bills and lost income, and that it also provides key benefits to families as they deal with economic challenges in the future.

We are deeply respectful of all our clients and derive strong satisfaction from helping them obtain meaningful legal recoveries that can make a material difference in their lives. We invite readers' questions and contacts, and the opportunity to help in a time of need.
