Widow denied federal benefits
I am trying to help someone else. Her husband died in the line of duty but the cause of death is not clear. The "Justice" Department has already denied her claim, because he might have had a heart attack, however, the medical examiner's report does not state a cause of death, it merely notes some pre-existing conditions and some broken ribs that might have either been caused by water that was turned on him or by EMTs trying to save his life.
Who can she turn to? Are there firefighter organizations that help widows get their benefits? There are four children involved.
