Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – My Husband Died On A Business Trip, Am I Entitled To Workers Compensation Benefits?

I am sorry for your loss, you could have several claims and not just one for Georgia workers compensation.

In Georgia, you may be entitled to death benefits under workers compensation.  When traveling as a condition of your employment there is a possibility that you have a workers compensation claim.

Under Georgia law beneficiaries or direct children as well as a spouse may be entitled to weekly income benefits which vary based upon the ages of the children at the time of the death.

Traveling businessmen such as your husband typically have coverage as mentioned up above, but you will want to contact legal counsel immediately to find out what you need to do to pursue benefits.

Depending upon how the accident occurred you may also have what is called a third party claim.  If someone other than your husband’s employer was responsible for his death, that would be a third party claim or action and you will want to pursue that in addition to a workers compensation death claim.

Do not hesitate to contact a Georgia workers compensation attorney who will provide you a free consultation to tell you just what you may or may not be dealing with specific to your claim.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
