It is a sad fact of life that people sometimes die in accidents that were not their fault. The tragedy is particularly hard to bear for the family members left behind. However, if you are a spouse, partner or child of a person who has died in an accident that was not their fault, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation on their behalf, or make an injury claim loss of a close relative.
Injury claim loss of life
You may have been typing the phrase “injury claim loss” into your search box, and it may have given you two different types of articles for injury claim loss, as you can claim for loss of earnings as well as for loss of life.
Making an injury claim for loss of life
If a man dies after an accident at work, the spouse left behind might find it very difficult to manage to take care of her children and manage the household bills if her husband was the main breadwinner. Although making a personal injury compensation claim might be the last thing on that woman’s mind, if the claim were successful the compensation she received would help to prevent her facing financial problems after her husband’s death.
Of course, no amount of money can take the place of a person, or truly compensate for their death. It can, however, make life easier for those who remain behind.
You will need to find a solicitor who specialises in fatal injury compensation claims if you want to receive the maximum amount of compensation possible for your loss. Ask a solicitor to provide testimonials from satisfied clients to check that they have a good track record of helping people such as you.
There are also cases of people who die because of an occupational disease or a work-related illness. You can also make a claim against their previous employer if your spouse, partner or child has died because of one of these conditions.
