Do you or your family need to make a fatal injury claim?
Death can occur in any type of accident, industrial illness or medical negligence anywhere, any time. It can be totally unexpected. The loved ones of the deceased will be devastated – it’s bad enough losing them, but to know they died through someone else’s fault is even worse. The loss not only leaves them bereft, but can also leave them in severe financial difficulties. What if the deceased was the main breadwinner of the household — how will they cope with loss of the income? Of course there are state benefits, but they are nowhere near the amount of a wage. At some point, the problem will have to be addressed and an injury claim in St. Clement made to put them on a sound financial footing.
