Claim workers' compensation death benefits for your family

It is always tragic when a loved one dies due to injuries suffered in a workplace accident. In many cases, these accidents could have been prevented with better safety practices or more training for workers. After the work-related death of a loved one, California families are often left wondering how they will support themselves and what they need to do to claim workers' compensation death benefits. 

Fortunately, California workers' compensation benefits typically provide a family with financial support after the fatal workplace death of a loved one. While grieving families usually have a rightful claim to these benefits, it can be a complex process to actually obtain financial relief. Families should not have to navigate this complex process alone during their time of grief. 

Workers' compensation death benefits include funeral costs, medial expenses and other end-of-life expenses. The victim's dependents also have a rightful claim to loss of income benefits. There are certain steps that must be taken to pursue these claims properly, including proving that the death of a loved one was work related. 

Validating a claim for workers' compensation death benefits includes providing medical documentation that proves a work accident, injury or illness hastened or caused the death of a family member. A lawyer can help a family understand the process and his or her efforts can increase the chances for a successful claim. We have vast experience with the workers' compensation system and can help a family during the difficult time after a fatal accident. You have the right to understand your options and have an experienced ally throughout the entire process.
