Atlanta Workplace Death Lawyer
Have You Lost a Loved One in a Workplace Accident?At the Law Office of Carlos L. Corless, we have more than 20 years of experience representing families of people who have lost loved ones in workplace accidents.
The first step in these cases is finding the family members who are entitled to benefits under Georgia workers’ compensation law. Typically, the beneficiary is the deceased worker’s spouse, children or parents. In some cases, the deceased worker may have a dependent who is not his or her child. This is common within the Hispanic community, in which workers frequently send money to brothers, sisters or even distant relatives living in other countries. We know how to track down beneficiaries to get them the benefits they deserve.
What Benefits Are Available?
There may be a weekly workplace death benefit available to spouses that is provided for the rest of the spouse’s life. There may be a weekly benefit available to children that is provided until the child reaches adulthood. We know how to maximize compensation. In some cases, that may involve filing a wrongful death claim in addition to the workers’ compensation claim.
We understand that you are coming to us at a very difficult time. We want you to know that we are here to guide you through this. You should not feel any additional stress because of your lawyer. Rather, your lawyer should ease your stress by allowing you to spend this time with the rest of your family instead of in court or in a law office. That is what we will do.
