California family may need workers' compensation after fatality

Any person's line of work could put him or her at risk for injuries. In some cases, those injuries can be severe when an accident takes place on the job, especially when machinery or equipment is involved. Unfortunately, not everyone survives work-related injuries, and families can be left struggling. In some cases, workers' compensation could help.

It was recently reported that a worker in California lost his life after an on-the-job accident. Apparently, the accident took place on private property and involved a member of a tree clearing crew. Details on exactly what the incident entailed were not given in the report, but it did state that a four-wheeler overturned. Presumably, the worker was on the four-wheeler at the time, but it was not mentioned what caused the vehicle to overturn or whether other workers were involved.

The worker suffered critical injuries in the event and later succumbed to those injuries. The victim's age was not provided in the report. It was noted that Cal-OSHA would be investigating the accident since it was work-related. Additional information may be released at a later time.

The family of this California worker may not know how to handle this situation. After all, they may have relied on the worker in many ways, and finding coping strategies after a sudden loss is not always easy. Because this ordeal could lead to financial difficulties, the surviving family may want to gain information on workers' compensation to determine whether they may qualify for survivors' benefits, which could help them address some of those difficulties.
