Fatal traffic accident claims


Fatal traffic accident claims

If one of your loved ones has died in a road traffic accident, you may wish to consider making a claim against the party you feel was responsible for the accident. In these cases, fatal traffic accident claims may be necessary if the loss of your relative has added to your devastation by making things financially difficult.

No amount of money will ever bring back your loved one, but it may help to ease the pain of other problems that your relative’s passing has caused. If a third party’s negligence has led to a death then the sum paid to settle fatal traffic accident claims will be substantial, as it is likely to represent the earnings that the victim would have accumulated for the rest of their working life, as well as including a substantial element awarded to the family for the suffering they have experienced.

Fatal workplace accident claims

In today’s health and safety-focussed workplace, the welfare of employees is undeniably and justifiably paramount. Stringent steps are taken to ensure that risks are minimised to the greatest extent possible. Failure on the part of employers to follow these steps can result in injury, and in the most tragic cases death. These are particularly prevalent in industries where heavy machinery is involved, such as manufacturing and construction.

Employers have a legal duty of care towards their employees, including an obligation to hold indemnity insurance. Under UK law, they must conduct risk assessments of both their premises and their working practices. This is designed to isolate and draw attention to risks present. If a fatal accident occurs, the company’s working practices will fall under the spotlight and they may leave themselves open to a fatal accident claim being brought by the victim’s family. The same applies for non-fatal accidents at work, as any injury caused through alleged employer negligence could lead to a lawsuit on the injured party’s behalf.
