Well, the answer could be both. If somebody dies as a result of the on-the-job injury, then there is definitely a claim for Workers' Compensation benefits, and there are death benefits that are payable. Those benefits are capped at $150,000 for Workers' Compensation, and $7,500 for funeral expenses. There could also be a wrongful death claim, depending upon the mechanism of how that person died on the job.
