Are California employers liable for fatal work accidents?
So if the death, it happened at work, and it was in the course and scope of the work, then there is a death benefit that would be paid to the family members, that's under the Workers' Compensation scheme. Otherwise, there also might be additional damages available, if there was another third party that was responsible for the death other than the employer. And so you should contact an attorney to find out, if there are additional damages for a fatal injury at work.
