Nowadays we live in a world where you can make accident claims in Pencoed, using Accident Advice Helpline, if you lose a loved one in an accident that was not their fault.
Making fatal accident claims in Pencoed
If your family member and loved one lost their lives unnecessarily, then you could make a fatal injury claim if:
- They were the victim of a violent crime
- They were the victim of medical negligence
- They were the victim of an accident caused by someone else
Apart from the utter devastation and grief the family will be experiencing, they could also have extra worries because of their financial situation. Whether the deceased was the main breadwinner or not, the financial implications of a death can be horrendous, not just in the immediate aftermath, but for the future as well.
How Accident Advice Helpline can help the dependents
UK law says that if you are a dependent of the person who has died, then you are entitled to claim compensation. This is generally their nearest and dearest, but could also include other family members such as parent, children, aunt and uncles and their siblings. They do not have to have been married for a claim to be made, civil partners have just as much right to the compensation.
Part of the amount given, is a statutary bereavement payment which can only be paid once. Therefore if more than one person can prove they were a dependent on the deceased, this money is divided equally between them.
All this, and much more will be explained to the family when they contact Accident Advice Helpline. We know what an awful time this is for the family members, and will treat them with compassion as well as endeavour to keep all the stress of making a claim off their shoulders.
