NYC Workers' Compensation Death Benefits Lawyers
When misfortune strikes in the workplace which results in the loss of life, there are few words that can express the inconsolable sadness felt by all those involved. We know this is a very difficult time, and planning for the future seems impossible in light of the present tragedy.
The workers’ compensation attorneys at Kaplan Lawyers PC are here to help you in every way that we can so you can grieve your loss while we help to ease the financial burdens you will face.
The loss of a loved one will create a gap in family earnings. To adequately provide for your family, you will need to recover the wages that have been lost. The widows and widowers of the deceased are generally entitled to two-thirds of the lost wages. If the deceased has left behind children, they are entitled to benefits up to the age of 21, unless they attend college, in which case they are entitled to benefits up to the age of 25.
At Kaplan Lawyers PC we realize how tough it can be to focus on legal issues during such an emotional time, but urge you to call our workers’ compensation lawyers to let us take this portion of the ordeal off your hands. The consultation is free, and no fees are charged if we’re not able to secure you the benefits that you deserve. There are no words that can adequately express our sympathy, but we’re here to offer whatever help we can.
