Work-related death might include people who have died from a tragic injury. It might also include people whose death has been caused by exposure to harmful chemicals and they've contracted a disease, lung disease, cancer. Sometimes it's unclear what the cause of the death was. If you have a loved one who's passed away, or if you are the dependent of someone who's passed away, and you're unsure of whether their employment may have contributed to their death, it's best that you consult with a work comp attorney and find out. Proving a work-related death can be extremely difficult, sometimes a complex case.
