    Default Widow's Benefits

    My Father died of complications due to colon cancer at 81 years old. He had been receiving workers compensation benefits since 1972 from a back injury he received working for TVA. My mother was informed that she would no longer get the check because Dad's death was not caused by the injury he was receiving benefits for.

    Anyone out there that can shed light on this. Is this a proper judgement.

    I am drawing w/c and my lawyer told me that if I died, my wife would receive my benefits in one lump sum of what is left.
