Can you make car accident injury claims in Ebbw Vale after a fatal incident?
When a serious road traffic accident or collision occurs, people often sustain very serious or life-threatening injuries. Due to the rapid response of emergency services personnel, these people are often able to receive medical treatment within minutes of the incident occurring and they can go on to make a full recovery.
In such cases, the person who has sustained injuries may want to pursue car accident injury claims in Ebbw Vale in order to obtain compensation for the harm they’ve suffered. In general, they would be expected to make the compensation claim themselves, unless they require assistance from a family member of their next of kin.
However, there are some instances in which medical treatment is unable to save the lives of those injured in car or road traffic accidents. If a fatality occurs, it’s often presumed that car accident injury claims in Ebbw Vale cannot follow.
In actual fact, it can be possible for the relatives of the deceased to make a compensation claim against the person responsible for the incident.
Of course, in many cases, family and friends simply don’t feel able to cope with taking legal action during such a traumatic and difficult time. However, they don’t have to make a compensation claim straightaway.
In general, it is possible for a compensation claim to be made up to three years after the incident has occurred so relatives may want to wait some time before taking legal action.
