    What is bereavement compensation?

    If you have lost a loved one in an accident, you could be entitled to claim compensation.

    The Fatal Accidents Act 1976 was introduced by the government to ensure that the loved ones of an individual killed in an accident received financial compensation. Currently, this is a fixed sum of £11,800, and is only awarded to certain family members. Bereavement compensation can be awarded to:

    • Husbands and wives, or the civil partners of the deceased
    • The parents of a minor (child under age 18)
    • The mother of an illegitimate minor (child under age 18)

    If you have lost a loved one in a Hart car accident, depending on the circumstances you could be entitled to claim compensation. The accident must have taken place within the past three years, and it must have been caused by someone else’s negligence. If the deceased was found to be in no way at fault for the accident, contact Accident Advice Helpline to find out more about your rights to compensation.

    How can Accident Advice Helpline help with a Hart car accident claim?

    Losing a loved one is not only devastating emotionally, but it can have a significant impact on your finances, too.

    If the deceased was the primary wage earner, you could be looking at a significant change in your household income, as well as things like funeral costs that can add to the financial pressure. Compensation may not be able to bring back your loved one, but it can certainly help with these and other expenses during a difficult time.
