The injury sustained may have been as a result of an accident at work, a road traffic accident, or even a slip, trip or fall accident in a public place.

    Compensation for fatal accidents

    Whatever the cause of death and circumstance, if the accident was caused by someone else’s actions or inactions, or an injury caused by negligent exposure to a hazardous substance, the compensation will normally consist of the following:

    • Special damages: this may include funeral and other expenses, including legal costs;
    • Solatium: compensation made to dependants for the mental distress and anguish caused by the death of the deceased; and
    • Loss of dependency: compensation made for the loss of financial support suffered by the dependants as a result of the untimely death.
