Fatal trucking accidents: When you think of fatal trucking accidents many people do not initially consider the driver of the truck as being the victim as they normally think of driver and passengers in the vehicle that was hit as being the victims. This is not always true as many times truckers can be killed in large commercial vehicle accidents. These types of accidents can involve colliding with another tractor trailer, train track accidents, jack-knife accidents, inclement weather accidents and trucking accidents caused by driver fatigue.
Falls: Ladders, scaffolds and elevated walkways, particularly at construction sites, are common work arenas where someone can fall from a very high place. Falls such as these many times end in death due to the length of the fall.
Machine accidents: Heavy equipment such as cranes and other types of machinery can sometimes cause death in the workplace.
Heart attacks: During times of great stress such as a robbery, fire or natural disaster one can duffer a heart attack and die in the workplace. This does not necessarily only happen to older workers. If you lost a loved one due to a workplace heart attack you may be entitled to benefits and financial compensation according to California workers compensation law.
Suicide: If your loved one had a work induced, or work related mental disorder such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression of became addicted to painkillers due to a work related injury, and they committed suicide you may be entitled to financial compensation and other workers compensation benefits.
