The rate of accidents in the workplace has been reducing steadily for many years, and many of the accidents that still happen could have been avoided if HSE regulations were followed. Unfortunately too large a number of these accidents still lead to fatalities, but if a family member has died in an accident at work, then the family they leaves behind should still be entitled to justice.

What circumstance can I make a Charnwood accident at work claim for?
According to UK law any person who was a dependent of the deceased is allowed to make a Charnwood accident at work claim for compensation. Legally a dependent could be:
- A common law partner who had been cohabiting for at least 2 years
- The deceased’s parents
- The deceased’s children
- Husband or Wife
- Any blood relative
- An ex husband or wife
- A civil partner
How do you work out the amount for a fatality claim?
When calculating any claim there are many factors to be taken into account, but when the claim involves loss of life it is even more crucial everything is completed correctly.
Just a few of the things that will be taken into account are:
- Loss of future earnings. This is dependent on the age of the deceased.
- The amount of pain and suffering the victim suffered as a result of the accident
- The direct costs that must now be covered that wouldn’t have been necessary before. Things such as additional childcare, DIY etc.
- Probate and legal costs.
- Statutory bereavement damages. When there is more than one dependent the amount is divided equally between them.
