Available Compensation for a Death at Work
When a loved one falls victim to a fatal on-the-job injury, survivors can be entitled to Ohio workers’ compensation benefits. It’s important to act quickly to meet compensation claim and other deadlines so that you’re eligible for lost wage compensation and all other benefits available to you and your family.
Can I File a Death at Work Claim on My Own?
Immediate family members of those who have died in factory accidents, construction accidents, and other fatal accidents can claim Ohio workers’ compensation without legal representation. However, the assistance of an experienced attorney can reduce the chances of being denied compensation and benefits. If you’ve already been denied benefits or suspect safety violations or other employer negligence in the death at work of your loved one, your best course of action is to get qualified legal help.

Whether your loved one’s death at work was due to circumstances beyond control or willful negligence, he knows what it takes to present the strongest possible Ohio workers’ compensation or wrongful death claim on your behalf.
