Download Babcock Law's comprehensive Colorado workers' compensation guide today for a one-stop resource specially designed for injured workers and families.
Losing a loved one in a workplace accident is difficult enough without the hassles of obtaining your rightful Colorado workers' compensation death benefits. Generally speaking, workers' comp laws stipulate that surviving dependents are to receive 2/3 of the deceased worker's pre-injury wage along with funeral and burial expenses.
How long the weekly wage benefits last depends on your relationship to the deceased.
But sometimes, obtaining those benefits can be as much of a challenge as grieving over the loss of a loved one. Just when you thought things couldn't get any lower, you find out the workers' comp insurer is denying you much needed benefits you're entitled to under the law.
