Families who lose loved ones to a workplace accident can look to the Workers Compensation Act

It is a sad fact that workplace accidents in North Carolina are a fairly common occurrence. The North Carolina Workers Compensation Act provides employees a remedy by ensuring that the employee receives medical treatment and payment for disability caused by a workplace accident. But did you know that the Workers Compensation Act can also provide benefits to the family of an employee who dies because of a workplace accident? The Act provides that where an employee dies because of a workplace accident, or while travelling for his or her employer, his or her family may be entitled to the workers compensation benefits the employee would have received if he or she had lived.

Hard-working families rely on each other for financial support, today more than ever before. The loss of a loved one because of a workplace accident is an enormous toll on families for many reasons. One of those reasons is the loss of an income which the family relied on. The North Carolina Workers Compensation Act can help. If you have questions about the North Carolina Workers Compensation Act, or have lost a loved one due to a workplace accident, please call John Ayers or Christian Ayers at the Charlotte, North Carolina Workers Compensation law firm of Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler. We can be reached at (704) 377-5050.
