wrongful death claim when their loved one died tragically while working.

Temporary wage replacement - You are entitled to two-thirds of your gross average weekly wages (to
a set maximum limit) once you've been unable to work for seven days.
If able to return to work at a lower wage, you are entitled to two-thirds
of the difference between current and previous wages.
Lifetime medical benefits - You are entitled to medical care to treat your injury or illness as
long as it is deemed medically necessary. Your employer gets some power
in determining your physician.
Permanent partial impairment - You may be eligible for separate compensation if you have suffered the
loss of the use of a specific body part / sense, such as the use of a
foot or hand, or the loss of vision or hearing.
Permanent total disability - Lifetime wage replacement benefits may be available if you suffered
tremendous physical loss (the loss of both eyes, the loss of a hand and
a foot) in a single work accident. The benefits also may be available
if you suffered
traumatic brain injury.
Death benefits - You may be eligible for wage benefits and funeral expenses (up to $11,000)

you must request a cost of living increase - it is not automatically available.
