If you or a person close to you is involved in a serious accident it can have devastating consequences. Sometimes, the victim may die due to the severity of their injuries.
An unexpected death is an extremely traumatic experience and whilst it leaves families in emotional turmoil, it can also leave them in financial turmoil.
If the death was the result of negligence, it is possible to make a fatal accident claim for compensation.
Fatal injury claims can be made by the close relations of the deceased to ensure financial stability for those left behind, including:
- Civil partners
- Parents of victims under 18 years old
- Partners who have been co-habiting for over two years
Fatal injury compensation can be claimed for work accidents, medical negligence, motor, train or plane crashes and any fatal accident where a third party was to blame.
If the deceased suffered any pain or distress following their accident leading up to their death, a claim can also be made for the pain suffered. You can also claim for any financial losses, including medical expenses, loss of earnings and funeral expenses as well as financial support for dependents such as childcare and household upkeep.
