Additional Information

Parents or children of the injured worker can also bring suits of this type claiming the loss of services, typically companionship. Many jurisdictions have allowed these types of actions to be heard even when the worker is already receiving workers compensation benefits. Coverage for a lawsuit of this type is provided by the employers liability section of the workers compensation policy.
