Workers' compensation claim may benefit survivors

If a California employee were to be asked why he or she works so hard, a common answer may be that he or she does all he or she can to provide for his or her family. As the cost of living continues to rise, and the availability of full-time employment remains uncertain, people may consider themselves fortunate to find a job that can pay the bills. When a worker is seriously injured, or worse, killed on the job, grieving families must face the loss of a loved one and an uncertain financial future. In such cases, a workers' compensation claim may benefit survivors. 

Recently, a married father was performing his duties at a California citrus farm. He needed to shut down a large windmill, a process he had completed on numerous prior occasions. The man's brother, a fellow worker, reported the tragedy that unfolded suddenly. 

As the man went to shut the windmill down, something went terribly wrong. A giant piece of the machine came loose and struck the man. He died of blunt force trauma. Now, the man's wife and two children must face the prospect of managing to overcome their grief and somehow manage to survive without the hard-working man's full-time income. 

Many California residents may not be aware that, if a person is killed at work, surviving dependants may qualify to receive workers' compensation benefits, paid to a family on behalf of the deceased employee. In such cases, an experienced attorney may be able to help. An attorney can help surviving family ensure that they are able to collect any payments for compensation to which they may be entitled by law.
