Reasons for Workplace Death Benefits

If a loved one is killed in a workplace accident, you are likely entitled to compensation. This compensation is in place for a wide variety of reasons – both financial and emotional. Let’s explore some of the common reasons that the law provides compensation to the family of an individual that is killed in a workplace accident:

• Lost Future Wages: Future earnings of the deceased can be considered in a claim.

• Lost Benefits: Lost benefits, such as health insurance, may be considered in a claim.

• Funeral Costs: The costs of funeral and burial are a factor that authorities may consider in a claim.

• Mental Anguish: Mental anguish caused by your loss is considered a factor in fatal workplace accident claims.

• Other: There are many other reasons that you may be due compensation. Medical expenses, loss of companionship, and other factors may contribute to compensation.
