Workers Compensation Death Benefits in California
There is a limited amount of time for family members to apply for death benefits. As a knowledgeable Murrieta and Palm Springs Workers Compensation Death Benefits Attorney, Kevin Cortright works diligently and with compassion to help provide for your needs.
If the work injury was not the primary cause of death, surviving dependents may still qualify for death benefits when the work injury was a contributing factor.
In California, death benefits include:
- Funeral expenses
- Financial payments
Eligible recipients of death benefits include:
- Surviving spouse
- Children under age 18
- Children of any age who have a disability
To qualify for death benefits, the recipient must have relied on the income of the deceased. Some family members will qualify as total dependents, while others will qualify as partial dependents.
