When you are involved in an accident that occurs on the job, there are a number of necessary worker’s compensation forms that need to be completed and then submitted to the appropriate office. One of these forms is called Form 30D.
Form 30D is also known as Award Approving Agreement for Compensation for Death. This form is for when a death of the employee occurs as a result of the work related injury. The dependents of the employee can file this form to receive compensation. Form 30D should be completed by the dependents or their attorney and filed with the North Carolina Industrial Commission.
In addition to compensation for death, the employer could also be ordered to pay for burial expenses, all medical, hospital, nursing and other treatment expenses incurred by or on behalf of the deceased employee when bills have been submitted to and approved through the Industrial Commission.
