Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) December 07, 2011
The Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C. announce the extension of their services to help the families of workers who have been killed in an on-the-job accident with their workers’ compensation claims. In 2010, 219 Pennsylvania residents tragically lost their lives as the result of injuries incurred on the job. A range of different causes were associated with these fatal occupational injuries, including transportation accidents, contact with machinery or equipment, falls, and exposure to harmful substances, among other things. The occupational fields most likely to be associated with a fatal workplace injury were construction, transportation, and warehousing.
Fatal occupational injuries are devastating to the family of the deceased worker. Aside from the emotional trauma they may experience, family members who depended on the individual’s income for financial support may find themselves in a desperate position. Fortunately, the state of Pennsylvania’s Workers’ Compensation Act provides financial benefits to the deceased worker’s dependent survivors in order to help them during this difficult time.
However, filing for workers’ compensation benefits can be a complicated process. Furthermore, particularly in cases involving occupational fatalities which may require significant benefit payments, the insurance company providing the workers’ compensation coverage may be reluctant to fulfill their financial obligations. For these reasons, it may be necessary to pursue legal representation to receive the necessary benefits. The Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C. are prepared to help all those who have tragically lost a family member due to occupational injury to pursue the compensation they deserve.
