If a member of your family was killed in a workplace accident, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. The amount of compensation is governed by the North Carolina Industrial Commission, but family members are typically entitled to 400 or 500 weeks of compensation, based on the average weekly salary of the deceased individual. At the law office of Jay Gervasi, P.A., we help families in Greensboro and throughout central North Carolina receive the financial benefits to which they are entitled.
Do I Need To Work With A Lawyer To Receive Death Benefits?
Few things are more emotional than losing a loved one, especially if the death was unexpected. In North Carolina, immediate family members of an individual who was killed in a fatal workplace accident may be awarded workers’ compensation benefits.
In most situations, family members can receive the compensation to which they are entitled without retaining an attorney. However, an experienced lawyer can handle the paperwork and ensure everything is filed correctly. Attorney Jay Gervasi knows this is a difficult time, and he works closely with clients throughout the process to provide the answers and legal support they need.
