Workers Compensation Death Benefits

Orange County Attorneys Pursuing Workers’ Compensation Death Benefits

Helping you recover your financial loss when a loved one dies

When you lose a loved one in a workplace accident, it can be overwhelming and leave you with a lot of questions. We are here for you and we want to answer your questions. The workers’ compensation attorneys at Tous Law Group understand that no amount of money is sufficient to compensate for losing your loved one in a workplace injury. However, it is our goal to seek an award of death benefits to assist you and your family in recovering from your financial loss and helping you move forward. When a job-related injury results in a fatality, we are here to provide you strength and compassion and help you seek the compensation you are entitled to.

Workers’ compensation death benefits

Dependents of the deceased are entitled to receive death benefits. The amount of the death benefit depends on the number of total and partial dependents. Death benefits include funeral and burial expenses, currently in an amount up to $10,000. Beneficiaries are also entitled to receive compensation for lost wages. Death benefits are paid at the total temporary disability rate, but in California it is not less than $224.00 per week. Death benefits are typically paid to the victim’s spouse until the spouse dies or remarries. A victim’s child can typically receive death benefit payments until the age of majority. We can help you prove dependency on the victim and establish your entitlement to receive compensation for the loss of your loved one in a worksite accident.

Types of fatal workplace injuries

Various types of job site accidents can result in fatalities. In our years of experience, we have handled cases such as:

  • Work-related automobile accidents
  • Extensive burns
  • Exposure to hazardous materials or chemicals
  • Crushed by falling objects
  • Forklift accidents
  • Fall from a ladder or scaffolding

The goal of workers’ compensation death benefits is to provide compensation for the people who suffer the most from losing the worker. A workers’ comp attorney can help you recover the death benefits you and your family are entitled to receive after losing a loved one in a job-related accident.
