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.

- The pain and suffering of the deceased if they were conscious of pain before they died;
- Funeral costs;
