Losing a loved one is the most painful experience anyone can go through. An unfortunate reality is that if that loved one was a breadwinner or otherwise financially supported the family, the grief of loss may be compounded by financial challenges. If your loved one was lost due to a workplace accident or an injury or illness connected to his or her course of work, you and your family may be entitled to death benefits through the workers’ compensation system. The workers’ compensation system recognizes the importance of the financial contribution workers make to their families and it offers compensation to help families deal with:
- Loss of income
- Medical bills
- Funeral expenses
Securing the representation of a skilled and experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help ensure that you and your family have what you need to make it through this most difficult time.
