When a worker has died in a work-related accident, workers' compensation benefits are, by law, available for dependants. Spouses and children need these benefits to help make up for the worker's support. There are lifetime death benefits that are available for a dependent widow or widower. Understanding these benefits and the regulations that govern them, can be complex. It is important to speak with a wrongful death construction accident lawyer if you have lost a loved one such as a father, brother, son, daughter, sister or mother in a fatal workplace accident.
