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.
