  • husband dies in the middle of work comp case what now?????"

    my husband was hurt on the job and waited 5 months before finally they (work comp) approved a surgery date. he had the surgery (neck) and then the following friday he passed .the death is still pending. he was only 40 and we have a 3yr old son and he has a 14yr old from a previous. now what happens with the comp case? and how long does it usually take to settle now that i presume it has ended? we are drowning in piled up bills. thanks for any info. diana
