Fatal Accident Claims

Losing a loved one is a terrible personal experience and causes great pain for close family.

There are many things to deal with and often it is difficult to grieve in the immediate aftermath. It is important, then when you are ready, to start thinking about the future and whether the accident was someone else’s fault.   If it is, you should make a fatal accident compensation claim.

Can I Claim For Fatal Accident Compensation?

These types of claim are dealt with differently to other types of injury cases.

The law specifies who can make a claim for fatal accident compensation.  These include:

  • Current or previous spouse or civil partner
  • Co-habiting partner, if you have been living with the deceased for at least 2 years before the fatality
  • Any parent or other ascendant of the deceased
  • Any child or other descendant of the deceased
  • Anyone who is a brother, sister, uncle or aunt of the deceased
