Even in the old days, fatal accidents happened all the time, just like they do today. The only difference today is that you can use a compensation solicitor in Arrochar at Accident Advice Helpline to make a personal injury claim, if the accident was not the victim’s own fault.
Unfortunately a death can happen in an accident at any time, and the results for the family and friends can be devastating. On top of their sudden unexpected loss, there can be many other worries, not the least of them being their financial situation, particularly if the deceased was the main breadwinner of the household.
A compassionate compensation solicitor in Arrochar will help with a fatal injury claim
There are state benefits to help a family out until things are on a more even keel, but they are not enough to replace a wage and pay any liabilities they may have.
If someone else caused the fatality, the answer is to make a fatal injury claim against the guilty party. In most cases, there will be insurance involved and it will be the insurance company that settles the claim.
If you have lost a loved one in a fatal accident then you will need the help of a solicitor in Arrochar or our experts at Accident Advice Helpline to guide you through the complexities. There are so many things to be taken into account for the family, that with the help of one of our solicitors in making your fatal injury claim, we can make sure nothing is missed and maximise the amount of compensation they receive.
Can any dependent make the claim?
Yes, any dependent can make the claim, you do not have to have been married to the deceased for Accident Advice Helpline to make your compensation claim. UK law says that anyone who was dependent on the deceased can make a claim and this could be:
- A civil partner
- An ex-civil partner
- Someone who was living with the deceased as husband or wife for at least two years before the death
- A parent
- Someone the deceased treated as a parent
- A child
- Anyone else that was a dependent of the deceased
- A husband or wife
- An ex-husband or ex-wife
Part of the claim would be a bereavement payment that can only be paid once. If more than one person proves dependancy, this is split evenly between them.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline our solicitors have assisted many families over the years to get the compensation due to them, and have built up a wealth of resources and knowledge to get you the best compensation payout available.
