What Are Death Benefits?
Losing a loved one because of an on-the-job accident is a devastating experience on many levels. Our attorneys offer compassionate representation and fight for workers' compensation death benefits on your behalf. These benefits can provide a degree of financial stability that can allow you to focus on the emotional needs of you and your family.
These death benefits apply to fatalities that occur during or immediately after a workplace accident, and they also apply to fatalities that occur months or years down the road but are still caused by a workplace illness or injury.
Death benefits typically include:
- 500 weeks of compensation. There is a formula that establishes a division of compensation for family members.
- Burial expenses. Limited burial expenses, up to $10,000, are provided.
