What Benefits am I Entitled to—Part 5 Death Benefits

By: Eric D. Abes

It is an unfortunate fact of our work–sometimes people die as a result of a work injury or illness. When this occurs, the attorneys at Abes Baumann are here to ensure that the surviving family is taken care of. If a death occurs within 300 weeks of the injury, the surviving family may be entitled to benefits including funeral expenses, all of the medical care that the deceased under went as a result of the injury, and weekly lost wages benefits based on the earnings at the time of the injury. Dealing with the death of a loved on is hard enough. Don’t try to navigate the Workers’ Compensation system alone at the same time. Let us help.
