If a worker is killed in a work-related accident in North Carolina, what can the family recover for the loss?

When it comes to fatal work accidents in North Carolina, generally the family will be able to recover two-thirds of the deceased worker’s average weekly wage for a 400-week period. If the family members are themselves disabled, they could possibly receive benefits for longer than 400 weeks. Raleigh workers' comp lawyer Brent Adams has represented injured workers for over 35 years and explains other ways to maximize benefits in this book on workers' compensation claims.
