Proven Kentucky Lawyer Advises Families in Death Benefit Cases

Knowledgeable Bowling Green attorney takes on workplace fatality claims

Families of workers who are killed on the job or die due to an employment-related illness will never be the same. Though it might seem like an afterthought, there are financial consequences that bereaved loved ones must consider. At Michael D. Lindsey, in Bowling Green, Kentucky, I counsel and represent surviving family members in matters relating to death benefits available under workers’ compensation law. Benefits include a lump-sum payment that currently exceeds $80,000 and weekly wage replacement that can go to surviving spouses, minor children and college students up to the age of 21 and other dependent relatives. After explaining how the benefits would be calculated in your case, I’ll help you collect what your family deserves.

Thorough firm seeks payments for surviving loved ones

If an employer or insurance company challenges whether a death was actually work-related, that could delay or deny payments to bereaved loved ones. My firm files the necessary materials with the Department of Workers’ Claims and makes sure that the relevant information is presented effectively in all types of death benefit proceedings, including those arising from:

  • Construction and industrial accidents — Construction sites, shipping facilities, factories and other industrial workplaces rely on heavy equipment to function effectively. These powerful machines also pose a threat to the individuals who work near them. A slight mistake could result in a fatality.
  • Vehicle collisions — Some jobs demand constant driving, while others might only require an occasional trip. Either way, a vehicle collision can occur at any time, leaving loved ones bereaved and triggering a series of legal and insurance issues.
  • Job-related illnesses — For decades, numerous construction workers and others were exposed to asbestos on an almost daily basis. Tragically, many died because they were not told that they could develop mesothelioma and other devastating lung diseases. Even today, many worksites require employees to come in contact with hazardous substances. If a family member died due to a job-related illness, I can help secure workers’ compensation payments and initiate personal injury lawsuits against any liable third parties.

From your free initial consultation through the resolution of your case, I’ll provide comprehensive legal counsel, including advice on insurance claims and potential wrongful death litigation.
