If you have suffered the loss of a loved one, let me first say that I'm very sorry that happened to you. Nothing can make that better. You have two years from the date of your family member's death to file a claim for benefits under the Alabama Workers' Compensation Act. You have time to grieve. Do not feel pressured to act right away, as you will need time to adjust to your loss.
The Alabama Workers' Compensation Act recognizes the loss that family dependents suffer as the result of the wrongful death of a loved one. Family dependents are entitled to compensation for the time that they would have been considered dependents under more favorable circumstances. How much compensation depends on the nature of the facts surrounding each case. I would have to speak with you to tell you more.
