    It can rip your world apart if you know that your loved one has died because of someone being reckless or negligence, and that the loss could have been avoided. After you have gotten over the initial shock of their death, then you may be considering the other implications of losing them, such as the families financial situation. Then you may want to make fatal injury claim for your Rutland car accident with personal injury lawyers to help you.

    A Rutland car accident

    The law says that a dependant of the deceased is allowed to make an injury compensation claim. This could be:

    • A civil partner
    • A former civil partner of the deceased
    • A person who had been living with the deceased, as a husband or wife, for at least two years
    • A parent
    • A child
    • Brothers and sisters
    • Uncles and aunts
    • Nephews, nieces and cousins
    • A husband or wife
    • An ex husband or wife

    The things that can claimed for

    There are several things the family can claim for, such as:

    • 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
    • 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 or childcare
    • The pain and suffering of the deceased if they were aware of pain before they died
    • Funeral expenses
    • Probate costs
    • Any other costs or losses associated with the death
