Seeking Compensation After You’ve Lost A Loved One

Losing a loved one to an on-the-job accident is a terrible thing for anyone to have to go through. During such difficult times, people need the time and space to focus on their own needs and the needs of their loved ones. At such a time, no one should have to worry about whether or not their lost loved one’s former employer’s insurance company is being fair. Our attorneys can take that burden from you.

Several issues are common in workers’ compensation death claims:

  • Apportionment of benefits — The way benefits are divided among family members after a fatal on-the-job accident can be a source of conflict. We can work to ensure you are treated properly.
  • Denied claims — Fatal accidents can be complex events with multiple causes. The insurance company is likely to assert that the true cause of the accident was one that would allow it to deny benefits. Our skill in investigation and litigation allows us to uncover evidence that we can use to secure the full benefits you deserve after losing a loved one.
