Workers’ compensation provides various benefits to employees injured at work due to one’s employment. In the unfortunate scenario of the death of an employee due to one’s employment, the employee’s family may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, damages for pain and suffering due to the employer’s or a co-employee’s negligence are not available in workers’ compensation.
