    Compensation for losing a relative in an industrial accident


    Working in a warehouse, factory or other industrial setting can be hazardous, which is why it is so important for strict health and safety procedures to be in place, to protect workers from the risk of accident. Losing a relative in an industrial accident is not only heart-breaking, it also leaves you wondering if their death could have been avoided.

    If someone you love has been killed in an industrial accident, the Health and Safety Executive will normally launch an investigation to get to the bottom of why the accident happened. If it turns out that your relative’s employer did not take the necessary health and safety precautions to protect staff at work, they could be held liable for their death – this could lead to a hefty fine, unpaid community work or even a prison sentence.

    Unfortunately, industrial accidents can and do happen, and if you have lost a family member in an accident at work, you could claim personal injury compensation for pain, suffering and financial loss – if they were the sole earner in your family, you could be left with no source of income, and this will be taken into account when you make a claim.

    Compensation for loss of earnings

    Losing a relative in an industrial accident is not only devastating, it can also have a financial impact on your family as you experience loss of earnings. Your personal injury lawyer will take this into account when handling your claim for compensation, and the settlement you receive should cover pain and suffering, loss of earnings and other financial losses such as funeral costs. Don’t forget though, there’s a three-year time limit in place to make a claim.
