Helping Your Family Recover After A Workplace Death
Massachusetts workers’ compensation provides financial benefits to families who lose a loved one in a workplace accident. While no amount of money can ease the pain your family is going through right now, your settlement with the workers’ compensation insurance carrier can pay for certain expenses and provide you a measure of financial security.
At Torrisi & Torrisi, P.C., our lawyers represent family member of workers who die in accidents. We offer one-on-one guidance to help you recover all of the compensation you are due. We will also review your case to determine if you are entitled to additional compensation by filing a civil wrongful death claim. We serve families in North Andover, Greater Lawrence, Greater Lowell, Haverhill, Tewksbury and other communities in and around Essex County.
Workers’ compensation death claims and civil wrongful death claims require special knowledge and experience. The sooner you contact our law firm following a workplace death, the sooner we can take steps to protect your rights and answer your questions.

- Another driver in a motor vehicle accident
- The property owner of a construction site

- The manufacturer of a dangerous or defective machine
