Personal Injury

Fatal Accidents

Losing someone you love in a fatal accident is overwhelming, shocking and tragic. The accident may have been a road accident or an accident at work. Whatever the circumstances, you are bound to be feeling so many different emotions. Consequently it will be hard to know what you need to do and who you need to speak to and it may be difficult to function at all. We cannot possibly understand what you are going through. Obviously no amount of money can make up for the loss you have suffered. However a compensation claim would be able to help you pay for the funeral costs and also help you to be able to feel more secure financially. Especially if you have lost your partner who was the main earner in your family.Speak with our Lawyers In Personal Injury today.

Fatal Accident Compensation

There is specific legislation which offers guidance on compensation claims following fatal accidents. A solicitor will be able to talk to you in detail about how much you are entitled to. The law is very specific about who can make a claim following a fatality. Consequently it is advisable to take advice as soon as you can. You do have 3 years from the date of your loved ones death to make a claim. Ensuring you don’t feel that you need to go ahead and deal with it straight away.

You can take your time and wait until you feel you are ready. If your loved one was killed in a road accident, you may need to prepare yourself for criminal charges to be brought against the person who was responsible and whilst a compensation claim is completely separate, any criminal conviction can only help in a civil case. If your loved one was involved in a fatal accident at work, there may be investigation and prosecution of your loved ones employer by the Health and Safety Executive. Nothing can ever prepare you for this, and you can get help from organisations such as RoadPeace, Brake or Cruse who can help you with the grief you are experiencing
