A spouse, parent, child, grandchild or any other person dependent upon an individual who died while on the job can apply for financial support through the Division of Workers' Compensation. This financial support, also known as death benefits, is meant to replace the support provided by the deceased worker to the survivor.
To speak with an experienced Denver death benefits lawyer to determine if you are eligible for this support, e-mail or call Picardi Law Firm today at 303-778-8881 to schedule a consultation.
The length of time individuals may receive insurance death benefits depends on many factors, including the age of the individual and the relationship to the deceased. In general, children will receive death benefits until they turn 21, as long as they go to college. If they do not attend college, the payments end at age 18. Spouses, on the other hand, will receive payments for life so long as they have not remarried.
In Colorado, there are statutory time limitations to file a claim (statute of limitations), maximum benefit amounts and many other issues that must be considered in a claim for death benefits. The skilled lawyers of Picardi Law Firm have been representing injured workers and survivors of deceased workers for several years.
