Worker Death

Worker death may result in workers' compensation insurance claims by one or more individuals who depend upon the worker for financial support. "Death claims" have different benefits available than a "normal" workers' compensation claim. Benefits may also include burial expenses.

Because of the "no fault" workers' compensation system, access to these benefits is much different than in a case of "wrongful death."

A workers' compensation lawyer can assist in exploring different options in cases of worker death, including whether to appoint a guardian ad litem.
