    Injury Solicitors in Dereham and dealing with the heartache of death

    Losing a loved one is always heartbreaking for the family. When they realise that the death happened because of someone else’s fault, that it happened in an accident that was so unnecessary, can make them feel even worse.

    A fatal injury claim should be made with injury solicitors in Dereham

    In this situation the family should be making a fatal injury compensation claim. It will probably be the last thing on their minds, but the realities of their financial situation will soon make it necessary.

    If the deceased was the main breadwinner then their wages are lost. If the deceased was a housewife and mother then children still need to be cared for and the house looked after. In order to cope the other parent may either give up work, thus losing their income, or pay for the household services they need, which will significantly reduce their earnings. Either way there is suddenly a lot less income whilst the bills still need to be paid. Making a fatal injury claim with injury solicitors in Dereham could at least give them some financial stability.

    The dependents who can claim

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

    • A husband or wife
    • An ex husband or wife
    • A civil partner of the deceased
    • An ex civil partner
    • Someone who has been living with the deceased, as husband or wife, for at least two years
    • A parent
    • A child of the deceased or a child within the family that has been treated as their own by the deceased
    • Siblings
    • Uncles and aunts
    • Nephews, nieces or cousins

    Part of the claim would be for statutory bereavement benefit. This can only be paid once and if more than one person proves their dependency it is shared equally between them.
