I don't believe he is entitled to workmens comp because he is deceased. He might have had life insurance, and if he died on the job, it's usually a lot more money. Slim outlook here. If he died on the job site you have some possible relief. If not did the job cause his heart attack? You don't have to have a lawyer. You can go visit all the Govt agencies and ask for help in seeking financial help and remedies available. A lawyer can speed things up and cut to the chase. Good luck and I am sorry for your loss. Burial benefits, and medical costs, if any. I'm sorry for your loss as well. You shouldn't need an attorney but please act fast. Contact his employer for the WC carrier, and if they don't have Comp & have 3 or more employees, contact the state at 800.533.0682 or the Enforcement Division at 404.6573.1391 (maybe they can transfer you from the 800#.)

It depends. Not every employee who loses his job can expect to collect unemployment.
