Mountain Ash Accident Claim Solicitors
It’s often said that there are three sure things in life: birth, death and taxes.
Whilst death is unavoidable, for those left behind it can simply be devastating, especially if the bereavement was unexpected or happened as the result of an accident.
When a tragedy occurs as the result of someone else’s actions, there is often also a sense of anger over the unjust situation. In this event, many people contact Mountain Ash accident claim solicitors to seek a claim for compensation for their loss.
In the First Instance:
Different people deal with grief in different ways. In the event of a bereavement, there is no right or wrong answer; there are simply different ways to manage.
Whatever you choose to do in the first few days, there are three very important things that must be done, whether the death was sudden or expected.
The first thing that is necessary is a medical certificate. This document is signed by a doctor to confirm the death of the deceased along with the suspected cause. The doctor can be either hospital based or a GP and it is this which is needed to then go and register the death.
Registration is necessary within five days of the death. By taking the medical certificate, the next of kin will be given the final death certificate and will be permitted to bury the person who has passed away. In addition, the death certificate will be required by Mountain Ash accident claim solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline as they process the compensation claim.
After that, the third thing is to bury the person who has passed away. Many funeral directors now offer a full service whereby they will take care of everything from the service to ensuring that all loved ones are present.
