Workers’ Compensation Death/Survivor Benefits Attorneys
Each year, thousands of employees die in work-related accidents, including construction accidents, auto accidents, and falls. Illinois workers’ compensation law allows employees to receive compensation for a work injury without filing a lawsuit. When a worker dies while on the job, their family can make a workers’ compensation claim and receive death benefits (for medical costs and lost income), but they cannot sue the employer for negligence. However, there is often a third-party on the job site that may be liable for the injuries suffered by the employee, and which is not the employer, that you can sue to recover damages including pain, suffering, loss of normal life, loss of consortium and more.
