If you have lost a loved one in a work-related accident, it is important that you explore your options so you can take steps toward recovering from this emotionally challenging period in your life. At the Law Office Of Joshua Borken, you can receive the help you need in taking advantage of workers’ comp death benefits. With an experienced St. Paul workers’ comp attorney by your side, you can get results.
Helping Families Of Fatal Workplace Accident Victims
Fatal injuries can occur in practically any occupation. However, construction workers, factory workers, law enforcement officers and those who must take great risks on the job are at a higher risk of falling victim to a fatal accident. The types of accidents include machinery mishaps, vehicle crashes, heavy equipment accidents, falls, explosions, fires and electrocutions.
Recovering Compensation Through Workers’ Comp
While injured workers can receive workers’ compensation benefits, the survivors of workers killed on the job can too. When the worker died from an injury or illness, the family may be able to obtain compensation days, weeks, months or years after the accident.
However, the insurance companies tend to challenge these claims. Fortunately, your St. Paul workers’ comp attorney is skilled at showing there is a connection between the work accident or illness and the death of the worker.
Benefits That Help You Move Forward
Those entitled to benefits include the spouse, children or any other dependents of the worker. The monetary portion of the benefits pays a portion of the workers’ wages. This wage replacement is designed to pay the family while they work to get on their feet without their loved one’s income.
When you hire Joshua Borken to help you obtain your benefits, he works hard and is willing to take the matter as far as it has to go so you can obtain the compensation you deserve. He has helped clients throughout St. Paul and as far as the Hibbing area win their claims and move on with their lives.
