Fatal Work Accidents & Injuries

Workers' Comp Death Claims

If you or your family have suffered the tragic loss of a spouse or loved one as the result of a workplace accident or a disease caused by working conditions, you are entitled to receive death benefits under their workers' compensation insurance coverage. It may also be possible to receive additional compensation if it can be shown that other "third party" liability can be established as having been a contributory cause.

For more information and legal advice on workplace fatalities, speak to a Loveland workers' comp attorney at Busch Law Offices and arrange a free consultation on the matter.

As a father and son legal practice, we are dedicated to personally helping each of our clients with their legal problems. The difficult times following the tragic and unexpected death of a loved one can be particularly trying and we do everything possible to handle the legal side of it efficiently and smoothly.

If the circumstances of the fatal accident require further investigation we can provide the resources necessary to do so. If it appears that the accident or injuries were the result of a third party that should be held liable, including such things as defective products or equipment, we can advise you on your legal options.

Workers' Comp Attorney in Loveland

The death benefits available to surviving dependents equal two-thirds of their average weekly wage. They continue for different amounts of time depending of their relationship to the deceased. A spouse will get such benefits for the rest of his or her life or until they remarry.

Workers' compensation settlements are paid through an insurance company and like all such companies, they often attempt to reduce or modify the claims presented to them for payment. Having the legal representation of an experienced worker comp lawyer to protect your rights can help you seek the full settlement you are entitled to.

Dependent children can receive benefits until they reach the age of 18 unless they are still in school, in which case the benefits may continue until they are 21. The employer will pay for funeral and burial services as well as any medical expenses required prior to their death.

For more information and help to file for and receive all the benefits you deserve, call our offices for an appointment. Contact a Loveland Workers' Comp Lawyer!

From Happy Clients

  • The Busch Law Firm was the best choice I could have made.

    “The Busch Law Firm was the best choice I could have made. Brett Busch was a top-notch Attorney and represented me during the three year legal process with Workers comp as well as a personal injury claim. During these three years he guided me through the process to maximize my claim. He kept me well informed and was prompt to return my calls or emails whenever I had a question or concern. Deidra Deery , Brett's Paralegal at the Firm , was more than helpful anytime I needed assistance. As a matter of fact everyone I spoke to at the Busch Law Firm was kind and caring any time I was in contact with. This Law Firm and Brett were always professional and most importantly effective in resolving my legal issues.”

  • I 100% recommend this firm.

    “Where do I begin? The process is unbelievably long. That said, I can't imagine doing this without legal representation and assistance. I applied for Social Security Disability benefits in July 2009. I was denied by Social Security in October 2009. I immediately filed an appeal online. By the time I heard back from Social Security in December 2010 I had pretty much forgotten about my appeal. My case for appeal was set for June 1, 2011. Social Security said I could represent myself, or obtain a private practice lawyer or a lawyer from a pool of government lawyers in Fort Collins. Needless to say, I was so overwhelmed I was not very optimistic about any option. I procrastinated until March, when I attempted to contact the government agency in Fort Collins. We played phone tag, and I was not impressed. I just happened to see in the Loveland Reporter Herald "Mark Your Calendar" section, that there was a seminar on options for your Social Security appeal. I went, even though I was told the seminar was full, because time was quickly slipping away. Words, though, don't describe my relief to find that the meeting answered all my questions. There was no pressure to sign up with Busch Law Offices. Brett patiently answered every question, and was very kind and empathetic. Because my hearing was quickly coming up, I received an immediate meeting with Brett. Here is the most important thing: I don't look ill or disabled. He took the time to read my medical reports, he asked pertinent questions and he listened. When we agreed to work together, he again patiently and simply explained everything before I signed. There were no surprises. Lynne, his assistant, quickly organized all my medical records. Whenever I called, her calming and cheerful voice eased my mind. If she did not have the answer to questions, she conferred with Brett and always returned phone calls in a very timely manner. Brett sent me to the proper physicians. The day before my hearing, we spent almost three hours going over reports, facts, how to answer questions at the hearing, even how to dress. We were very well prepared. The day of my appeal, Brett calmed me by talking to me about anything but the hearing. It worked. He presented my case simply and efficiently. I was at ease, and we won. On a personal note, Brett is an exceptional young lawyer. Social Security Disability is a very difficult and emotional arena. Brett worked and spoke like a seasoned veteran. As for Lynne, she is simply the best. I 100% recommend this firm.”

  • You were a God send

    “Thanks Brett....what you did for is the last 2 years were a God send and above and beyond your call of duty having to put up with me....lol and all my confusion and patience on your end. You and your staff are wonderful people that I believe truly want to help and not just for the money. It feels like I list a friend after closing my case and no more communication. You will always be a good memory. If you treat everyone like you did me you will always be a success. Merry Christmas ”
