Workers' compensation: Deputy killed responding to call

Law enforcement officers in California and across the country are dedicated to helping those they have been sworn to protect. In many cases, this requires them to speed toward potential dangers, often putting their own lives at risk. Unfortunately, reports indicate that a deputy in another state recently lost his life in an accident that happened while he was responding to a call. Because of this, certain surviving family members may be entitled to workers' compensation insurance benefits.
