Fatal Accident Claims

When you lose a loved one, making a claim for fatal accident compensation is likely the last thing on your mind. However, while we fully understand the overwhelming sense of loss and trauma you will be feeling at this time, it’s important to take care of yourself and your family too – which is why we work with you to ensure your financial burden is eased if possible.
If your loved one’s fatal accident was as a result of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to claim for compensation. This includes for the victim’s physical or emotional suffering prior to death and for your psychological suffering as well as for the loss of financial support due to the accident.

What Can You Claim For?

Whether the fatal accident was caused by a work related injury, medical negligence, or road traffic accident, if the victim was not at fault, you can make a claim for compensation.
If the victim was injured in the fatal accident and endured mental or physical distress prior to their death, you can make a compensation claim for this and for the victim’s financial loss during this time too.

However, if the accident resulted in immediate death for the victim you can’t claim for this compensation – but you can still claim for the financial loss caused to dependants.

Various members of the victim’s family can make a claim if they were previously dependent on the individual for financial support, including a child, partner, parent and sibling.

In addition to the victim’s and dependants’ claims, there is a statutory award for bereavement, currently of £11,800, that is payable upon a successful claim for fatal accident compensation being made, even if there is no loss of income to reliant family members.
