Accident Solicitor in Higham

A solicitor with a client

If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident which was not your fault, then you may be searching for an accident solicitor either in your telephone directory, or on your computer. Perhaps a close relative was in a fatal road accident, and you don’t know what to do. When you have lost someone close to you, the last thing you want is to deal with financial matters and legal cases. However, if you know that the accident was not the fault of your relative, then you can claim compensation. You might find an accident solicitor in Higham who can deal with your claim, but if there is no specialist locally, you could contact Accident Advice Helpline, a law firm which specialises in winning compensation cases such as yours. With Accident Advice Helpline a solicitor who specialises in your type of claim to give you the maximum chance of success.

Types of accidents which could be fatal

Fatal accidents can occur just about anywhere, but the most common fatalities are from accidents on the road, accidents in the workplace, military accidents, medical negligence, and aviation accidents. As long as the fatality occurred through no fault of the deceased, then his or her nearest relative can claim compensation. Although money can’t bring a person back to life, it can help those who are still alive to have a more comfortable life at a time when perhaps the main breadwinner of the family has died.

Statutory award for bereavement

As of 1st April 2013, the statutory award for bereavement was increased by ten per cent from £11,800 to £12,980. This award can be claimed by the surviving spouse or partner, or to a mother who has lost a child or the parents of a legitimate child. The proviso is that the death must have been caused by the negligence of another person.

Fatal accident claims

Apart from the statutory award for bereavement which an accident solicitor in Higham or other specialist can help you claim, a dependent (a child’s guardian, spouse or partner) can seek compensation on behalf of the deceased for loss of earnings and the pain, suffering and distress caused after the death. If you were a dependent of the deceased, you can claim for medical expenses which were incurred from the date of the accident. The compensation can also cover funeral costs.
