    Default Worker's Compensation Death Benefits

    My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: Alabama
    My husband was killed in a work related accident. He was employed by several different companies. Will his children receive workman's comp based on the employer who was responsible for his death, or should they receive compensation for ALL of his lost wages? Any help or direction would be appreciated.

    Default Re: Multiple Employers

    They'll receive worker's compensation death benefits.

    For death claims, multiply the employee's average weekly earnings prior to the accident by 50% if the employee has one dependent, or by 66 2/3% if the employee has two or more dependents. Death benefits are subject to maximum and minimum in effect on date of injury. Death claims cannot exceed 500 weeks of benefits.

    More details are here.
