Fatal Workplace Accidents in Virginia

Recovering Death Benefits Through Workers' Compensation

No matter the circumstances, the loss of a loved one is an emotionally devastating experience. A sudden loss caused by a work-related accident adds an additional element of difficulty for grieving families who not only have to pay for medical bills and funeral services but also must consider a new financial reality.

We Offer Dedicated Representation in Your Time of Need

In order to receive death benefits, a causal connection must be established between the accident and the fatality. Our skilled and compassionate attorneys at The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC have over 75 years of collective experience in assisting families and are ready to review your case!

We excel in analyzing, investigating, and presenting the necessary evidence to help you fight for maximum compensation. We will handle the battle with the employer and their insurance companies so you can focus on the grieving process.

Please contact us at (571) 290-2390 for a consultation!

Types of Compensation You & Your Family Can Recover

We know there is no amount of money that will remedy the loss of a loved one, but we also understand that the healing process can’t begin when families are forced to prioritize financial concerns. When fighting for benefits following a fatal workplace accident, a lot of information and questions need to be considered.

For example, did you know you can receive up to $10,000 for burial expenses under the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act? Or that the amount of benefits you can receive depends upon the relationship between the deceased employee and the claimant?

We can pursue compensation for the following:

  • Workers’ compensation benefits to dependents
  • Wrongful death claims
  • Transportation expenses
  • Funeral and cemetery expenses
