The First Steps In A Workers’ Compensation Cases
The first step in these cases is finding the family members entitled to benefits under Georgia workers’ compensation law. Typically, the beneficiary is the deceased worker’s spouse, children or parents. In some cases, the deceased worker may have a dependent who is not his or her child. This practice is common within the Hispanic community, where workers frequently send money to brothers, sisters or even distant relatives living in other countries. We know how to track down beneficiaries to get them the benefits they deserve.
What Benefits Are Available?
There may be a weekly workplace death benefit available to spouses provided for the rest of the spouse’s life. There may be a weekly benefit available to children that is provided until the child reaches adulthood. We know how to maximize compensation. In some cases, that may involve filing a wrongful death claim in addition to the workers’ compensation claim.
