Death Benefits

Woodstock Death Benefits Attorneys

Helping Grieving Families Recover Needed Benefits

Some events are so terrible we prefer not to think of them. This makes it all the more shocking when something awful happens—such as the death of a loved one in a workplace accident.

In such circumstances, it is the duty of the employer to help the family maintain normalcy by providing recompense for the deceased’s lost income. If the employer or their insurance company is at all reluctant to do this, it is time to call a lawyer.

It is The Warlick Firm's honor to stand beside families in such difficult times. We help families recover the death benefits they’re entitled to under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act with compassion and competence.

Understanding Your Rights to Death Benefits

Death benefits are paid to dependents of the deceased, whether your loved one was killed in an accident at work or died sometime after from the injuries they sustained. Even if the deceased did not provide the only source of income to the household, that does not decrease the benefit amount to which dependents are entitled.

Death benefits typically cover the following expenses:

  • Medical expenses that accrued before death as a result of the injury
  • Reasonable burial expenses, up to $7,500
  • Weekly payments of two-thirds of the worker's average weekly wage, up to a maximum weekly benefit of $675

This weekly wage payment occurs for a variable amount of time. The maximum wage benefit that can be paid under Georgia law is $270,000. This means that if you are being paid the weekly maximum of $675, the benefit will last for 400 weeks, or about 7.5 years. If you are not receiving the maximum amount, benefits could be paid for longer. You may also not receive maximum benefits, as determined by the judge on the case.

Commonly Asked Questions

Can I still receive death benefits if the deceased was not the sole income provider?

Yes, in Georgia, the entitlement to death benefits is not diminished even if the deceased was not the sole provider of income to the household. The benefits are designed to assist the dependents of the deceased by compensating for the loss of income, regardless of whether it was the primary or a supplementary source of income. The key factor is the financial dependency of the claimant on the deceased at the time of death.
