Death Claims

When a loved one is killed because of a work accident or occupational illness, the grief can be overwhelming. Though no amount of financial compensation can make up for your loss, workers' compensation dependency benefits can help you maintain financial stability during a difficult time.

At Michael Schultz Law Firm in Minneapolis, we represent the surviving family members of workers who have died because of work-related illnesses or accidents. We will help you pursue all of the benefits that you are entitled to receive as a dependent under Minnesota's workers' compensation laws. With more than 25 years of experience in workers' compensation law, attorney Michael Schultz will ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive maximum compensation for your loss.

Helping Dependents Get The Compensation They Need

Dependents of deceased workers, including a spouse, children and other extended family members, may be entitled to receive workers' compensation dependency benefits for 10 years. Additionally, the dependents may be entitled to receive burial expenses, up to $15,000.

There are many different factors that could impact the amount and duration of benefits that will be paid. This is a complex and often confusing area of the law. As a skilled Minneapolis attorney for death claims, Michael Schultz will help you navigate the complex workers' compensation system and ensure you get the benefits you are entitled to receive.

If you believe that a third party was also responsible for your loved one's death, you may also have a wrongful death claim. Michael Schultz will help you with your workers' compensation death claim, and he will also help you pursue a claim against any negligent third parties. He will complete a thorough investigation into the cause of your loved one's accident and aggressively pursue compensation from all liable parties.
