Employees who die before they can get any or all of their benefits may be able to have family members such as a spouse, children, and parents receive these benefits. Some of these family relationships are not clear-cut. However, North Carolina’s workers’ compensation law does have its own set of definitions.
While we know that nothing can erase the pain and suffering resulting from the tragic loss of a loved one, North Carolina Workers’ Compensation law does take care of the family members and dependents of deceased workers. Attorney Joe Miller at Joe Miller Law, Ltd., will work to make sure the families of workplace accident victims get payment for burial bills, any medical bills that were necessary because of the accident and the right amount and share of lost wages the worker lost.
