    Injury claim in Studland


    Injury claim in Studland

    Fatal injuries can mean an injury claim in Studland

    Studland is a village on the Isle of Purbeck in the English county of Dorset. It is famous for its beaches and nature reserve. Accidents happen in Dorset as much as anywhere else. If one of those accidents results in fatal injuries, the family may want to make an injury claim in Studland.

    The family should make an injury claim in Studland

    Losing someone close always leaves the family devastated, but if that death has occurred because of someone else’s fault or negligence that is even worse, and they may be able to make a fatal injury claim in Studland.

    Finances may mean they have no choice

    If the deceased was a wage earner, on top of all the other problems, the financial ones can be dire. Even if the loss is a housewife with children, consider the cost of the childcare and all the household jobs now that she is no longer there to do them. Although it will be the last thing on their minds at the time of the loss, at some point they will have to consider the financial implications and think about making a fatal injury claim in Studland.

    Those who may be eligible to make a claim

    The UK law says that anyone who was dependent on the deceased can make a fatal injury claim in Studland. This could include:

    • A husband, wife, ex-husband or ex-wife;
    • A civil partner or ex-civil partner;
    • Someone who has been living with the deceased as husband or wife for two years;
    • A parent;
    • A child of the deceased or a child within the family treated as their own by the deceased;
    • Brothers and sisters;
    • Uncles and aunts; and
    • Nephews, nieces or cousins.

    How the final settlement is calculated

    With any type of personal injury claim, there are always other factors to take into account.  A fatal injury claim in Studland is no exception and can include:

    • The pain and suffering of the deceased if they were conscious of pain before they died;
    • Funeral costs;
    • Probate costs;
    • Loss of future income, which would be less for an older person on the assumption that they would have less years left to work;
    • Statutory bereavement damages; and
    • The costs of other things the deceased would do, such as DIY and childcare.
