Compassionate Help After A Workplace Death


Losing a loved one is extremely difficult. If the person you lost was the primary wage earner, you can be further troubled by the loss of his or her salary. Certain family members who were financially dependent on the deceased worker — such as spouses and children — may be able to file a claim to collect benefits. To fully understand your rights, talk to The Law Office of Bryan S. Hawkins.

We offer free initial consultations with our Augusta fatal workplace injury lawyer. To schedule yours, please call us in Augusta at 706-305-1130 or send us an email using our online contact form.

Who Can Collect Death Benefits in Georgia?

The criteria for who is able to collect benefits are extremely complex. By working with our law firm, you can be confident that you will fully understand your rights. Generally, we work with spouses and children.

As a surviving spouse, you may be able to collect workers’ compensation death benefits for the remainder of your life, unless you remarry. Children can collect death benefits up through college. Parents or grandparents of the deceased worker may be able to collect benefits if they were living with the worker.

As our client, you will work directly with an experienced and dedicated attorney on every aspect of your case. We provide the attentive legal care you need to secure full compensation for your losses.
