Death Claims & Dependency determination
Experiencing the loss of a loved one is perhaps one of the most difficult and painful parts of life, especially if sudden and unexpected. Death as a result from an incident at work, or caused from an injury sustained at work, can be emotionally and financially taxing on a worker's family.
According to the Department of Industrial Relations, a spouse, children or other dependents are eligible to receive death benefits if an employee dies from a work-related injury or illness. This includes burial benefits, as well as compensation until a dependent is of 18 years of age (or life if the dependent is disabled).
