Do you need help with making an injury claim?
Little Walsingham is a village in the county of Norfolk. The village is famed for its religious shrines in honour of the Virgin Mary and as a major pilgrimage centre. It also contains the ruins of two medieval monastic houses. When it was built, the Holy House was paneled in wood and had a wooden statue of the Virgin Mary with the child Jesus seated on her lap. It became one of Europe’s great places of pilgrimage and remained so through the middle ages.
In the event that life is lost because of an accident caused by someone else, or someone else’s negligence, the upset becomes even worse. The unnecessary loss of a loved one is totally devastating, but as hard as it may be, the relatives should consider using experienced injury lawyers in Little Walsingham, to claim recompense from the guilty party.

The dependents need to claim for everything they can
The compilation of the claim will depend on the family and their circumstances but every area of the effects of losing the loved one should be looked at, things like:
- The pain and suffering of the deceased if they were aware of pain before they died
- Funeral costs
- Probate costs
- Loss of future income, this would be more for a younger person as it would be assumed they would work for more years
- Statutory bereavement costs, which can only be paid once. If more than one person proves their dependency, the amount is split equally between them.
- The costs of things the deceased would have done, for instance gardening or decorating, sewing or childcare.
- Any other cost or loss, which is a direct result of the deceased losing their life in an accident that, was not their fault.
