Have you lost someone close to you in a fatal accident?
When someone close to us dies suddenly, it is a devastating loss and a complete shock. However, if someone is fatally injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault, then the grief and despair may be compounded by anger and resentment towards the guilty party. The dependants of the person killed, or their family members, may be able to make a fatal injury claim in Tanworth-in-Arden.
Although no amount of compensation will change the fact that the person is gone, at least the dependants’ financial security can be established so that they can survive financially.
It is not just the spouse of the deceased who is eligible to make a fatal injury claim in Tanworth-in-Arden. The following family members are also legally entitled to make a claim:
- Husband or wife

- Common law spouse who has lived with the deceased for at least 2 years
