    Monmouth accident at work claim


    Are you looking to make a Monmouth accident at work claim? You’re not alone. Last year, nearly 150 victims lost their lives in accidents at work, most of which were the fault of someone else. It is traumatic enough when someone dies through age or illness, and you are expecting it to happen, but to lose someone suddenly, when the death could have been avoided, is soul destroying.

    UK law says that if you are injured in any accident that was not your own fault, you are entitled to claim compensation from whoever was responsible. Someone losing their life is no different, except it will be family members who are making a Monmouth accident at work claim for compensation.

    Addressing the financial aspects with a Monmouth accident at work claim

    If the accident that caused the death was in the work place, there stands a chance that the victim was a breadwinner of the household. Without even thinking about funeral costs, probate costs, or any other costs, this on its own could cause severe financial problems because the income is lost.

    No amount of money will turn back the clock and bring the loved one back, but at some point the family are going to have to address the financial problems, and one way to do that is to make a Monmouth accident at work claim for compensation.

    When the family are making their claim, there will be many things to be considered, such as:

    Open Claim Calculator

    • Loss of income for the future, this would be a lower figure for on older person on the assumption they had less years left to work.
    • Childcare costs, as if there is now a lone parent they may need this to be able to earn a living themselves
    • Statutory bereavement damages – this is only paid once and split evenly between dependents if there are more than one
    • The costs of other things the deceased would have done such as DIY, gardening, cleaning etc.
    • The pain and suffering of the deceased if they were aware of pain before they died
    • Funeral expenses
    • Legal fees associated with probate

    People do not always realise just how expensive it would be to have to pay for every job that a housewife and mother does, but they would very soon find out if this was the position of the deceased, and they suddenly needed to get these jobs done. In fact in this situation, it is often cheaper for the partner to give up work, and do the jobs themselves.
