Workers’ Compensation and Death

Posted On: September 26, 2018

Workers’ Compensation and Death 

Workers’ compensation pays survivor benefits to dependents in the unfortunate event of a work-related death. Dependents can include minor children and surviving spouses of the deceased. If there is no surviving spouse or children, other relatives of the deceased may be eligible to receive payments. The best way to ensure dependents receive the correct survivor benefits is by contacting a workers’ compensation attorney.

Discrimination based on a workers’ compensation claim

Posted On: September 12, 2018

Discrimination based on a workers’ compensation claim 

It is illegal for an employer to fire you or punish or retaliate against you in any way for filing a workers’ compensation claim. Potential new employers also may not discriminate against you for having filed a claim in the past or for receiving benefits. If you believe you have been discriminated against due to a workers’ compensation claim, you may file a claim with the New York Compensation Board within 2 years of the incident. 

Feel free to contact the law offices of Gilbert, Blaszcyk & Milburn for a free consultation on your possible claim.
