Thank you for your follow-up, Rachel. I am most glad to assist, and you are most welcome.
I cannot tell you whether or not workers compensation
still have to pay you your husband's salary or not--that depends on the contract and th insurance benefits provided to you under the benefit. Most have a death benefit pertaining to insurance based on a set amount of wages
that has to be paid out if the death was caused by an on-the-job injury, but without reviewing the language personally I cannot give you a more specific response. As for obtaining counsel, that is your right at ALL times. I strongly urge you to speak with larger firms that may experience with these branches of the law:
1. complex civil litigation
2. multiple defendants and subrogation claims
3. wrongful death and personal injury &
4. workers compensation and employment benefits claims.
In addition if your husband was a member of a union, a firm that has a background in administrative law and unions should be tapped to assist you, as this may end up being a fairly complex cause of action.
