Fatal Accidents & Injuries Compensation Claims
No amount of money can adequately compensate for the loss of a loved one. Having said this, family members should not have to experience the added burden of financial difficulties when attempting to come to terms with this traumatic change in circumstances.
Should a family member sustain a fatal injury either as a result of an accident or the development of an industrial disease, it may be possible to recover personal injury compensation. Where it can be established that the fatal injury arose through the negligence of another party, compensation can be recovered on behalf of:
- The deceased’s Estate and
- A limited class of people who were ‘Financially Dependent‘ upon the income of the deceased.
Bereavement damages can also be recovered in certain circumstances and in very limited cases it may even be possible to recover compensation for any psychological injuries you have experienced.
An Inquest will be undertaken into the cause of death and this can be a traumatic experience in itself. In addition the circumstances surrounding a fatal injury may not be entirely clear even following an Inquest and as a consequence further detailed investigations may be required in order to establish whether another party was in fact to blame.
