Any time a person dies before having the chance to live a full life is an unspeakable tragedy. For surviving family members and loved ones, this tragedy is amplified when the cause of death was preventable. Unfortunately, many people are killed at work, either due to accidents or to exposure to toxins or other chemicals.
If you have lost a loved one due to a workplace accident or an illness contracted at work, you are now left to deal with a number of very real concerns. One major concern is making certain that you recover all the benefits you are entitled to receive. In certain situations, particularly in situations where the deceased left behind children from a previous marriage, there can be issues as to who is entitled to which benefits.
At Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., our lawyers will explore every potential avenue of compensation, whether you are eligible for death benefits from Social Security, workers' compensation or other government benefits. If another company was partially or totally responsible for your loss, our law firm can file a third-party claim against those responsible. Third-party claims typically present the opportunity to recover more money than other death benefits. Our lawyers have pursued third-party claims in a variety of circumstances, including deaths caused by exposure to asbestos in the workplace. We understand that money is ultimately an inadequate remedy for your loss. Money, however, can help you deal effectively with some of the financial issues you are dealing with during this difficult time.
