Fatal accident claims are emotionally difficult, but fatal accident compensation can be essential in providing financial stability for dependents.
Having experienced a tragic event some people feel uneasy about making a fatal accident compensation claim and we can understand that. But we can assure you that making a fatal accident claim is appropriate and indeed, important. Fatal accident claims help to reduce the financial strain that results from the loss of a spouse or partner who contributed to the household purse, giving you one less thing to worry about while you adjust to your new situation.
for no obligation advice on making a claim.
Often, the most important aspect of fatal accident claims is getting to the truth, finding out what happened and why. There’s a sense that justice needs to be done and as an innovative and leading accident compensation practice we see the restoration of balance, and reparation, as a priority. In fatal accident claims we’re not sure it’s possible to obtain true justice, but we’ll work hard to bring you as close to that as you can get. If it’s appropriate we can help you take action against the culprit and represent you or your family at an inquest where the cause of death may be investigated. While compensation is important we recognise that, in a fatal claim, a sense of justice is likely to be as, or more, important to you.
Even if the deceased was not the main breadwinner there will be financial consequences for the family and of course, if they were the main, or sole, breadwinner the impact of that can be significant. In the UK, when dealing with fatal accident claims, the courts look very closely at what this financial impact will be and award fatal accident compensation that is balanced against the financial consequences of your loss. This may include loss of earnings, a future pension, state benefits and other areas of income that have been affected.
There are restrictions on who can make a fatal accident compensation claim on behalf of the deceased.
