    Dealing with the death of a loved one is always difficult, but it is even more challenging if they died as a result of an accident that was not their fault.

    Making a fatal injury claim on their behalf may be the last thing on your mind, but if you obtain compensation, it could help you to resolve your financial woes and obtain a sense of justice.

    Common causes of fatal injury claims

    Fatal injury claims can arise from a wide range of accidents, including:

    • Accidents at work
    • Road traffic accidents
    • Industrial diseases
    • Accidents on holiday
    • Medical negligence
    • Slips, trips and falls

    Time limits apply for all fatal accident claims

    If you wish to make a fatal accident claim, you must do so within three years of the date of your loved one’s death. It is therefore essential for you to seek the advice of a specialist accident lawyer as soon as possible.

    In this type of claim, an inquest will usually be held to determine the cause of your loved one’s death. The coroner, who conducts the inquest, may call upon witness testimonies to establish whether the negligent party caused the accident that led to your loved one’s death.

    Once the coroner has returned a verdict, you will be free to ask an accident lawyer to file a fatal accident claim against the negligent party. Through your accident claim, you will be able to recover a wide range of damages, including bereavement damages and funeral expenses.
