If you have a loved one who you believe died because of a work injury, you may be entitled to death benefits. As with all workers’ comp cases, the death must arise out of and in the course of employment. The industrial injury must contribute to the death. It does not need to be the sole cause of the death. Dependents of the decedent may be eligible to receive the death benefits. However, not everyone qualifies.
