Colorado Workers' Compensation Death Benefits – Ensuring Loved Ones are Taken Care Of

Denver workers' compensation attorney R. Mack Babcock helps surviving family members obtain much needed benefits when they're needed the most

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.

Colorado workers' compensation attorneys at the Babcock Law Firm help family members get around the roadblocks that prevent them from receiving full death benefits

Workers' compensation death benefits were put in place in Colorado so family members/dependents would not be left out in the cold if their loved one tragically died in a workplace accident. Unfortunately, obtaining these vital benefits can sometimes be a challenge in of itself without the help of a good workers' compensation attorney.

And while the law prescribes limitations to these benefits, they serve as an important lifeline in case the unthinkable happens.

So if you're experiencing problems obtaining workers' compensation death benefits in Colorado, your Colorado workers' compensation attorneys at the Babcock Law Firm can provide you with options that are available to you in this difficult time.
