Why Should I Hire A New York City Workers’ Comp Law Firm?
Of course, there is no amount of money or workers’ compensation benefits that could possibly make up for your loss, but ensuring you receive the benefits to which you are entitled may make a significant difference in your family’s future. Many families have lost a loved one who was a financial provider for the family. The loss of income can create serious issues for those who are left behind. It is important for your family and your future to contact a lawyer to help you through this difficult time.
In New York, the surviving spouse and children (or perhaps other dependents, who may vary depending on the case) may be entitled to weekly cash benefits for their loss. Workers’ compensation death benefits are typically equal to two-thirds of the worker’s average weekly pay in the year before the accident occurred. Funeral expenses may also be covered, to an amount of up to $5,000 or $6,000.
