Workers’ Compensation Death Benefits For Dependents In Cleveland

Losing a loved one unexpectedly is devastating. If your spouse or parent was tragically killed in a work-related accident in Cleveland, you’re likely facing a mountain of emotions and financial uncertainties. Here at Bentoff & Duber Co., L.P.A., our attorneys understand the immense hardship this situation creates. With decades of experience, we’ve helped countless families navigate the legalities of workers’ compensation death benefits in Ohio.

Workers’ compensation death benefits are a financial safety net designed to provide some support for surviving dependents after a work-related death. These benefits can help cover:

  • Lost wages: This helps replace the income your loved one contributed to the household.
  • Funeral expenses: Financial assistance is available to help offset the costs of burial or cremation.
  • Medical bills: If your loved one received medical care for their work injury before passing away, these benefits can help cover those costs.

These can be essential benefits as you navigate life without your loved one. Our attorneys can help you seek compensation to support you in the weeks ahead.

Who Qualifies For Death Benefits?

In Ohio, surviving spouses, dependent children and some dependent parents may be eligible for workers’ compensation death benefits. The specific amount of benefits you receive will depend on several factors, including your loved one’s wages and the number of dependents.
