Claims for Death Benefits
Orlando Workers’ Compensation Attorney
All too often, injuries that are suffered while working result in death,
leaving the family and loved ones of the deceased in a state of emotional
shock and without support. When these tragedies occur, seeking financial
compensation is rarely a top priority. In addition to this, few people

Benefits Surviving Family Member Are Eligible For

Don't Let the Insurance Company Deny Your Claim!
Death benefits are payable to surviving family members of a deceased employee,
including the spouse, children, or other dependents. As with workers’
compensation settlements for injuries, they are paid through the employer's
insurance company. Unfortunately, the insurance company may attempt to
deny, reduce, or modify claims, making the legal services of an experienced
lawyer crucial for obtaining the maximum amount that you are entitled to.
Our team is fully prepared to help you in your time of need as we use our
extensive knowledge of the law to fight for the settlement that you deserve.
