At Sawers & Sackel, our lawyers and our dedicated team represent the families of individuals who died in workplace accidents. We understand that this is one of the most difficult times in your life. It is not a time that you should be spending on legal issues. We'll focus on your claim so you can focus on being with your loved ones during this period of loss.

Workplace Death Benefits

Workers' compensation death benefits are available to a spouse, children and potentially other parties related to the deceased worker. When we handle these cases, we thoroughly review the circumstances to determine who is entitled to benefits.

Family members may be entitled to funeral expenses. Wage benefits may also be available. These benefits will be paid out weekly for a certain number of years and based on the deceased's income. We recognize that these benefits can be crucial to families, particularly when the deceased was the breadwinner. Our goal is to maximize benefits so that families at least do not have to suffer financially because of their loss.
