Fatal Accidents – Are You Entitled to Make A Claim?

The thought of losing a loved one through a fatal accident is the worst feeling anyone could ever imagine and the grief that follows from this can leave the family devastated. It is not only this, but it can also leave them in a financial crisis, particularly if the victim is the main breadwinner of the household. There are many families, for instance, who rely on their partner to at least share the financial burden with them, particularly if they have children to support.  If you lose a family member in this way and it was the result of another person’s carelessness or negligence, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Shropshire. The compensation will never make up for the loss of a family member but it can help to ease the financial side of it, so that you can go through the grieving process without having any extra worries to deal with.

Types of Accidents

There are many types of accidents which can lead to fatalities, including road traffic accidents, slips, trips or falls and even accidents in the workplace. Those accidents which seem minor at the time can even lead to the death of a loved one. As long as the accident was caused by someone else, you have the right, as a close family member, to make a claim against them for compensation. It is important to have witnesses if you are looking to make a claim as you might find that the other person is reluctant to admit liability.

Victims and Dependants

If your loved one is involved in a fatal accident at the hands of another person, you can make a compensation claim in Shropshire. The claims are made up of two separate parts; the victim award and the dependant award. The victim award is the compensation which is given for the suffering of the victim, and the dependant award is compensation given to a family member who may have been relying on the victim for financial support. A close relative who can claim in this case includes a blood relative or your other half. The victim would have to be a first hand blood relative, which means second cousins etc., would not be able to claim compensation.
