Death And Dependency Claims Work With a Team With a History of Excellence

Chicago Fatal Work Accident Attorneys

Helping You Navigate Death & Dependency Claims

Workers who are killed in the course of employment often leave behind spouses and/or children who were dependent on them. Legal remedies for survivors include workers’ compensation and wrongful death claims against negligent parties other than employers.

At Anesi Ozmon, we are here to help. Contact our fatal workplace accident lawyers in Chicago today to begin with a free initial consultation.

Experience & Understanding in Handling Dependency Claims

A workplace accident is normally compensable through a workers’ compensation claim.

Workers’ compensation in Illinois has provisions for death and survivor’s benefits as follows:

  • An $8,000 burial benefit for the survivor or person paying for the burial
  • Survivors’ benefits calculated as two-thirds of the employee’s gross average weekly wage during the 52 weeks before the injury, subject to minimum and maximum limits

The survivor or survivors may be: (1) spouse and young children; (2) totally dependent parents; or (3) persons who were at least 50% dependent on the employee at the time of death. An attorney at Anesi Ozmon can explain the process of filing successful worker’s compensation death and dependency claims in Illinois. Contact us for a no-obligation consultation.

Third-Party Liability Claims

Sometimes a workplace accident involves third-party liability – a fault of someone other than the employer. The liable party may be a manufacturer or a subcontractor, to name two possibilities. In this case, a personal injury claim against the liable party may help survivors recover compensation for the death of a loved one on the job. Illinois Statute 740 ILCS 180, provides compensation for survivors “whenever the death of a person [is] caused by wrongful act, neglect or default.”

Compensation After the Death of a Loved One

Financial compensation cannot replace a husband, wife, mother, father, son, or daughter. It can, however, enable a survivor to have the means with which to move forward to recovery after the death of a loved one. Loss of society and companionship is an even greater cost than the loss of income of the deceased for many people. Discuss with one of our Chicago fatal workplace accident attorneys the types of compensation that are available to you after this tragedy.
