Determined Advocates Seeking Workers’ Compensation Death Benefits for You
If a family member or loved one is killed on the job, you are entitled to death benefits under the workers’ compensation laws. These death benefits exist to provide monetary benefits to you, the surviving spouse or child of the deceased. In terms of actual amount and length of payments, these workers’ compensation death benefits differ from a typical workers’ compensation injury claim.
It is important to understand that these death benefits are not putting a price on your loved one’s life, but are instead meant to help financially support you while you adjust to your loss. To learn more, contact our firm.
Pursuing All Avenues of Financial Recovery To Help You Provide for Your Family
When someone you loves dies while on the job, there are several options of recovery that may be available to you. We will not only pursue a workers’ compensation death benefit claim, but will also investigate whether anyone else contributed to the tragedy. If a third party was involved, we can bring a separate wrongful death claim on your behalf. However, we will take no action until you agree to it. We promise to provide you with all of your options while leaving you to decide how you would like to proceed.
