Death Benefits Lawyers
It is a horrible fact that Texas has an enormous amount of on the job deaths. If a loved one is killed on the job, you should seek legal assistance immediately. Death benefits are paid only to spouses and children, unless a parent or sibling was economically dependent on the injured worker. There are two exceptions to not being able to sue your employer if they have statutory workers’ compensation. In death cases family members can sue the employer for punitive damages if the employer was grossly negligent or acted with malice. Please contact our Austin death benefit attorneys for more information if you are dealing with such a tragedy.
