Benefits For Surviving Family Members
If you are the spouse or dependent of someone who died because of a work-related injury or illness, you are entitled to receive compensation for:
- Any related medical expenses your loved one may have incurred before death
- The costs of a funeral up to $3,000.00
- A percentage of the workers’ compensation wage loss benefit your loved one would have been entitled to receive (a spouse can receive these benefits for life or until he or she enters into another relationship; also note that the amount of this benefit varies according to the number of dependent children)
If the workers’ compensation insurance provider refuses to pay what you are seeking in a fatal claim (as they often do) — rest assured that our lawyers will be ready, willing and able to go to battle for you in court. Our attorneys Levi S. Wolf and Daniel E. McCabe are certified as a specialists in the practice of workers’ compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s section on Workers’ Compensation Law as authorized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
Fatal Accidents And Third-Party Personal Injury Claims
When a worker suffers a fatal accident at work because of the negligence or recklessness of someone other than their own employer or a coworker, eligible family members can sue the responsible party for damages above and beyond what is allowed in a fatal workers’ compensation claim. Our law firm has handled multiple fatal claims associated with workplace accidents and can help you seek full and fair compensation.
