Understanding death benefits from workers' compensation

Every job, no matter the industry, has risks that accompany it. Some jobs, like transportation or construction, are more dangerous than others. Logging, fishing and collecting garbage are all also very risky jobs where workers risk injury or even death for a paycheck. When your loved one engages in a riskier career, you likely spend every day of his or her working life worrying about safety.

For some families, the worst case scenario becomes a reality. One day, there's a phone call or a knock at the door. Suddenly, your entire world changes. The person you've depended on, lived with and loved suffered a serious accident at work. Losing a loved one to a workplace accident is a tragic experience, one that no one should have to go through alone.
