Fatal Accident Claims
When someone you love dies in an accident that wasn’t their fault, it can feel as if your world has ended too. An unexpected death can leave partners and dependents in financial turmoil, but with help from The Compensation Experts, you can focus on dealing with your bereavement without having to worry about where the money for funeral arrangements and day to day living expenses will come from.
We collaborate with skilled personal injury lawyers who understand that your future is in their hands. If you are entitled to claim compensation for the fatal of a loved one, then we will do everything we can to ensure you get a fair payment.
Types of Fatal Injury Claims
- Fatal injury claims can arise from any incident where the victim was not at fault, or only partially to blame. Examples can include:
- Sporting accidents and horse riding accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents, including being a passenger and a pedestrian
- Industrial accidents
- Medical accidents, including for elective surgery
To make a successful fatal accident claim, you need to be a dependent of the deceased or acting on behalf of their estate. For example, a spouse or partner can make a claim, as can an executor of the victim’s estate on behalf of their beneficiaries.
In a case study, a fatal injury claim was brought about by the husband of a woman who suffered severe depression. His wife was hospitalised during one such episode and, despite being a known risk to herself, was insufficiently monitored and able to leave the facility, giving her the opportunity to take her life by jumping in front of a train. Her husband’s lawyers successfully argued that had she received adequate medical care, her death would not have resulted as it did.
