Seeking help regarding issues associated with work-related deaths

One can only imagine the shock and grief associated with losing a loved one due to a workplace accident. Work-related deaths in California are always tragic, many times involving serious motor vehicle accidents or mishaps with heavy machinery. Trying to navigate the system regarding workers' compensation benefits can be quite stressful for an immediate family member who is acting in the aftermath of a loved one's death.

A grieving family often faces financial hardship following a fatal workplace accident. From medical bills for care rendered before death to funeral expenses and lost wages, exorbitant costs associated with an accident may compound the stress of an already difficult situation. Many families who have faced such problems in the past have found it very helpful to reach out for support.

With regard to emotional turmoil often experienced after a loved one's death, a trusted friend, minister or counselor can offer badly needed comfort. As for financial or legal issues that may arise, a workers' compensation attorney can provide various services to help families get the benefits they need. Beyond the basics of making sure a claim is filed through appropriate channels, an attorney can offer ongoing support should an employer or insurance agency attempt to deny a claim.

If you have questions regarding a particular situation, you may contact our office to arrange a consultation. We are prepared to explore all options available to help you recover the benefits you need to alleviate financial burdens associated with a catastrophic situation.
