Lawyer in Swiss Cottage


A lawyer in Swiss Cottage can help a bereaved family make a fatal injury claim

If you lose a loved one in an accident, this can heartbreaking and devastating. But if you know that the accident was unnecessary and not your loved one’s fault, that can cause anger and perhaps the need for ‘revenge’ against the party that caused the accident.

After the initial shock is over, the relatives might want to consider making a fatal injury claim, because the guilty party should compensate them for their negligence or recklessness. We know that no amount of money will bring your loved one back, but financial worries on top of everything else are just not needed. Compensation could make the family financially stable and take those worries away.

Talking with an injury lawyer in Swiss Cottage

We suggest you talk with an injury lawyer in Swiss Cottage at Accident Advice Helpline if the deceased lost their life because:

  • They were the victim of a violent crime;
  • They were the victim of medical negligence; or
  • They were the victim of an accident caused by someone else.

Any of these could result in a fatal injury claim being made, even if the death was not immediate.

Those who can make a claim

UK law states that anyone who was dependent on the deceased can make a fatal injury claim, such as:

  • Someone who has been living with the deceased as husband or wife for at least two years;
  • A parent;
  • Uncles and aunts;
  • Nieces and nephews;
  • A child;
  • Someone who lived with the deceased and was treated as their child;
  • Brothers and sisters;
  • A husband or ex-husband;
  • A wife or ex-wife; or
  • A civil partner or former civil partner.

It may take the family some time to feel ready to make a claim, but they have three years after an accident and two years after a crime in which to do so. If the victim lived for a while after the incident, the time limits start from the date of death rather than of the incident that caused it. If the victim knows their injuries are fatal, they should start their claim to make it less stressful for the family after their death.
