Despite great inroads being made by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) into reducing accident figures, the number of serious injuries and fatalities that lead to a Oadby and Wigston accident at work claim is still too high. It is particularly traumatic when someone loses their life, not just for the co-workers present, but also for the family and friends left behind. It can be even more frustrating for everyone involved when the death could have been avoided.
While money is little comfort when grieving a loved one, at least you can make sure the responsible party faces the justice they deserve. Normally the injured person is the claimant in a Oadby and Wigston accident at work claim for compensation, but in the case of a fatality it will be the remaining family members who make the claim on behalf of their loved one.
Taking the financial worry of your shoulders
If someone was injured at work, then chances are they have dependents who rely on their wage. Making an Oadby and Wigston accident at work claim for compensation can take the financial stress of your shoulders, allowing you to grieve in peace. There are many costs associated with a death in a family, from solicitors and funeral directors etc. While no amount of money can alleviate the pain, it can give you peace of mind that the people the deceased loved are secure financially.
When making a Oadby and Wigston accident at work claim for compensation there are many things to consider, some will be more immediate than others:
- Funeral costs
- Legal costs for probate
- The additional cost incurred to carry out jobs the deceased would have done, such as DIY and gardening
- Any additional childcare costs
- Future loss of income
- There are statutory bereavement damages, which is usually split evenly between dependents
