In representing our clients, we serve to dispel many incorrect myths about workers' compensation. Contrary to popular misperception, if your loved one was at work, and work caused the death of your loved one, then workers' compensation benefits apply to your loved one's death. Period. Workers' compensation law covers your loved one's death regardless of fault. Workers' compensation does not consider the question of fault in determining whether workers' compensation benefits apply so long as your loved one was acting within the scope of employment.

Do not rely on representatives from the employer or the insurance company to take care of you and your departed loved one. Ultimately, their job is to protect the interests of the employer and the insurance company. Instead, ensure that your loved one's rights are equally represented in the justice system. Retain your own attorney who will advise you in your best interests, not in the best interests of the insurance company or the employer.
