Losing a loved one in a workplace accident can leave you devastated.
Fatal workplace accidents occur throughout the UK every day, and can leave those left behind struggling in more ways than one. It can be not only difficult to adjust emotionally to the loss, but also financially, especially if your loved one was the primary earner in your household.
Between funeral costs and other added expenses, it can quickly be the case that you are struggling financially after losing someone in a workplace accident. This shouldn’t be the case, and Accident Advice Helpline is here to help ensure that you are looked after if you have suffered such an upsetting loss.
If you have lost a spouse, partner or child in an accident at work, you could be entitled to claim fatal Havant accident at work compensation. Accident Advice Helpline is a leading personal injury law firm, and we are dedicated to helping the families that have gone through such a loss to receive the maximum amount possible in fatal accident compensation.
Our high success rate sees over £30 million awarded in a compensation a year, with a number of the recipients being those who have had a loved one perish in an accident at work. We know that a compensation settlement cannot bring back the deceased, but it can alleviate any financial strain you may be feeling, helping you to focus on grieving and adjusting, not worrying about money.
We can help you claim fatal Havant accident at work compensation
There are certain workplaces and industries in which fatal accidents are more common, such as farming and construction. However, accidents at work can take place at any time, leaving you facing a huge period of adjustment if your loved one is involved. There will normally be an inquest after a death at work, through which the cause of death will be determined.
If it is found that the negligence of another party caused the accident and injuries that have led to the death, you could be within your rights to claim fatal Havant accident at work compensation and hold them responsible.
Under the Fatal Accidents Act 1976, you could be entitled to a lump statutory sum in compensation, which currently stands at £11,800. However, with help from Accident Advice Helpline, you may also be entitled to more.
We are here to help recover the maximum amount possible, taking into consideration not just bereavement, but all repercussions that have arisen as a result of the accident. One of our claims advisers will help you determine how much this could amount to with a quick, no-obligation phone call.
If you’ve lost a loved one, make sure you receive the justice you are entitled to, and call 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone to get a claim underway with an Accident Advice Helpline solicitor today.
