Claiming compensation

Our solicitors can help you claim the compensation you need to maintain financial stability after the loss of a bread winning partner.

Who can claim after a fatal accident?

For an indication of what you may be entitled to, call one of our fatal injury lawyers for a review of your case.

The Fatal Accident Act 1976 is an act which provides compensation for the dependants of the deceased, this is usually the spouse, partner or children who are under either 18 or 21 years old if they have remained in full time education. However dependants can extend to brothers, sisters, parents and grandparents.

What can you claim for?

A claim can be made for:

  • The pain, suffering and financial losses experienced by the deceased between their injury and death
  • Funeral expenses
  • Dependency loss, which is the loss of financial support such as net wages after the death of a breadwinner
  • Bereavement award

Working out what you could be due

There are various elements which are used to work out how much compensation is due. However each case is unique therefore it is impossible to gauge any possible compensation award without knowing the circumstances of a fatal accident claim. Call us to discuss your claim in detail.
