    Fatal accident in Lincoln


    An expert team of legal advisers ready to help after a fatal accident in Lincoln

    If a loved one of dies early in their life, because of an accident that wasn’t their fault, then this can be devastating for the people left behind. The anger and resentment families must feel when they know the the death was so unnecessary can only add to the grief and make it worse.

    Making accident claims will be the last thing on their mind, but really should be considered to ensure that the guilty party pays for what they have done, through negligence, malpractice, or any other type of misdeed. 

    This sort of situation can leave the bereaved family with severe financial problems, no matter what the age of the victim, or their contribution to the family. Replacing their income, or covering the costs of the things they once did, can be horrendous at a time when the family has more than enough trauma to cope with. Read on to find out what you need to know about claiming after a fatal accident in Lincoln.

    How fatal accidents happen

    There is no limit to the number of ways people lose there lives through no fault of their own, just a few examples being:

    • A work related accident
    • Severe food poisoning
    • A slip, trip, or fall accident
    • Medical negligence
    • A road traffic accident
    • An industrial illness or disease

    The time limits for making accident claims in Lincoln, or anywhere else

    Generally, the time limit for making a personal injury claim is 3 years.

    For a fatal accident claim, there are some exceptions to this particular rule, for example:

    • In the cases of industrial illness or disease the victim might not have been aware of the problem being connected to a particular employment until many years later. The family has three years from the date of death to make the claim.
    • Criminal injury compensation claims have a two year time limit.
    • If the injuries sustained mean that the victim does not die immediately but survives for a length of time up to three years after the accident, then the period for claiming is three years from the date of death, not the accident.
