While workers’ compensation laws provide workers injured on the job with much-needed benefits, they also allow for families to secure much-needed financial relief after the work-related death of a loved one and primary wage earner. At Westmoreland, Patterson, Moseley & Hinson, L.L.P., our lawyers combine their over 200 years of experience in representing family members mourning a loss throughout the state of Georgia.
Are You Entitled To Survivor Benefits?
Surviving spouses, dependent children and other family members dependent on the deceased worker can receive death benefits. While you may be focused more on the personal loss, you need legal help to attend to every detail of a workers’ compensation death benefit claim.
You may have such a claim if a family member was killed in work-related accident or died as a result of a job-related disease.
An experienced and knowledgeable attorney from our firm can help educate you on the process and manage state-mandated deadlines to ensure adherence.
We recognize that no amount of money will make up for the tragic death of a loved one. For many families, the loss of a primary wage earner has added financial uncertainty to already emotional situations. If anything, the compensation they receive from death benefits allows them to focus more on the personal loss.
