Numerous important no-fault benefits are available to the family members of the decedent, including survivor’s loss benefits and more.
Sadly, most insurance companies fail to be totally honest about available benefits surviving families are able to receive after losing a loved one in an accident. They often do not include burial and funeral expenses, pension compensation, disability benefits, or social security benefits.
