DBA Lawyers Fight For Your Benefits In A DBA Case

If your loved one dies as a result of an injury on the job, you are entitled to death benefits. Death benefits in a Defense Base Act case are payable at the rate of one half of the employee’s average weekly wage to a surviving spouse or child, or two thirds of the average weekly wage for two or more eligible survivors up the the current maximum rate of $1,114.44 per week. In order to receive death benefits, you may be required to prove dependency at the time of death. These death benefits may be payable to a spouse for the remainder of the life of the spouse, so long as the spouse does not re-marry. The death benefits to a child may last through college. You are also entitled to funeral expenses up to $3,000.00.

According to the law, you are also entitled to reasonable and necessary medical care for your injuries. You are entitled to treat your injuries with a doctor of your own choosing.
