Death Benefits — Helping You cope with an overwhelming Loss
People deemed dependents of the deceased worker can claim up to 400 weeks of workers' compensation benefits. The amount of compensation depends upon the deceased's income and the relationship between the worker and the claimants. Dependents covered under workers' compensation include spouses, children up to the age of 18, or other persons dependent upon the deceased worker.
One of the primary areas of contention in a death benefit claim may be the legal cause of death. For example, if a person suffers a heart attack while at work, did the job significantly contribute such that it is a workers compensation claim?
We will help you investigate and determine the cause of death, the benefits owed by workers compensation and your rights to obtain these benefits. We will develop a game plan to help you make sure that you receive the benefits that are you are due.
