What it contains
Anyone who must pay or has paid for medical expenses or burial and cremation costs can seek payment for these expenses if they are the result of the work-related death of a worker. A dependant can also make a claim for a lump sum and weekly pension if they were wholly or mainly dependent on the income of the deceased worker.
