Compensation In Workplace Wrongful Death Cases

The Georgia workers' compensation system provides for benefits to be paid to surviving family members of workplace accident victims. However, these benefits may not come automatically or they may be inadequate for your needs. That is why it is important to work with our skilled lawyers, who can guide you through the process and make sure you and your family are treated fairly.

The amount of benefits available depends on your family's specific situation. For example, a widow or widower of a worker will receive up to $7,500 in burial expenses, plus two-thirds of the worker's average weekly wage. That maximum possible compensation to the widow is $150,000. If the widow has dependent children, the benefit is increased and remains increased until those children turn 18, although under certain circumstances the benefits can be extended beyond age 18.

The system is detailed and can be difficult to understand, but you can rely on the law firm of Whitworth & McLelland to guide you through the process.
