Benefits for Dependents

In cases of an on-the-job injury leading to death, time is of the essence when filing a notice of claim. As difficult as it may be to think about speaking with a lawyer during these challenging times, waiting may make it impossible to collect the financial benefits you deserve.

Depending on specific circumstances, widows and widowers may be entitled to benefits for the remainder of their lives or until they remarry. Children, up to a certain age, may also qualify for financial benefits.

We have the resources necessary to investigate any type of death injury case and secure the benefits survivors need. The attorneys at our firm can handle cases for the dependents of those killed in a variety of work situations, including:

Death of a Firefighter, Police or Corrections Officer

Working to protect the communities we live in is very stressful. Many firefighters and peace officers suffer from stress-related heart diseases, including hypertension. A heart attack or stroke caused by work-related strain is, unfortunately, not uncommon. The law provides special statues to protect the dependents of these individuals. Claims may not require as much proof as those in other categories.
