Workplace deaths and the loss of a mother

Work-related wrongful deaths can be devastating to a family regardless of who passes away, but when a mother is the one who dies, that can impact the family in entirely new ways. If there are young children or even newborns in the family, these little ones won't grow up with their mother and could suffer psychological difficulties from the loss.

While most cases involving the loss of a mother who was on the job will focus on wrongful death benefits through workers' compensation, some may require wrongful death actions if the mother was an independent contractor or not covered by insurance for another reason. If that happens, the wrongful death claim will need to explain why the mother died and how the death was caused by misconduct, recklessness, or negligence.

Fortunately, with a workers' compensation lawsuit, the cause of death is not as important as the fact that the worker died in the course of her job. Because of that, the family can seek death benefits, which may provide replacement income, cover funeral costs and medical expenses, and so on.

When you lose a wife or mother, it's important to know your rights when it comes to workers' compensation benefits in Ohio. If your claim is denied or you need help filing, your attorney can help you fill out the documents for the quickest approval with the right evidence. Our website has more information on wrongful deaths and what to do when your family has suffered financial and personal losses due to an accident that took place on the job.
