If your loved one or a friend dies, then you will naturally be upset. If you know that the death was unnecessary, and it was the fault of someone else through their recklessness or negligence, then this can be heartbreaking and devastating. Even though it will be the last thing on your mind, you should consider using compensation experts in Kinnersley to make a fatal injury claim.
Who should make the claim and speak to compensation experts in Kinnersley
The law in the UK says that if you were the dependent on the person who has died, then you can make a fatal injury claim on their behalf. This could be:
- A parent;
- A child;
- Uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces or cousins;
- A husband or wife;
- An ex-husband or wife;
- A civil partner; or
- A former civil partner.
If you can show that you were a dependent of the person who has died, then you may be able to make the fatal injury claim using compensation experts in Kinnersley to help you.
Things for which you can claim
The compensation amount is made up from lots of different things when you use the injury solicitors at Accident Advice helpline. For example:
- The costs of things the deceased would have done around the home;
- The pain and suffering of the deceased before they died;
- Funeral expenses;
- Probate costs;
- Loss of income for the future, which would be a higher figure for a younger person on the assumption that they had more years left to work; and
- Any other costs or losses associated with the loss of a loved one.

At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that this is a difficult time for you and your family, so you should not have to go through all of this process on your own.
