    Injury claim in Lincoln


    Fatal injuries in an accident that was caused by someone other than the victim can have a soul destroying effect on those close to them. Knowing that the death was unnecessary can be devastating, much more so then if the death was expected because of age or illness.

    In the situation, the family have a right to make a fatal injury claim in Lincoln, and once they are over the initial shock, they may realise how important this can be if they are not going to be suffering severe financial problems.

    The people that can make a fatal injury claim in Lincoln

    To be able to make a fatal injury claim in Lincoln, you have to have been financially dependant on the deceased, and then the law lays down certain parameters for the people that can actually make a claim, they have to have been:

    • A husband or wife
    • An ex husband or wife
    • A common law partner
    • An ex common law partner
    • A child
    • A child that lived with them that they treated as their own
    • A grandparent
    • An uncle or aunt
    • A sister or brother
    • A cousin

    The government pay a bereavement allowance, but they do only pay it once and if more than one person proves their reliance on the deceased, the amount is split equally between them.
