Can next-of-kin make compensation claims?
The majority of people claiming compensation for personal injuries are making the claims for themselves, but it is possible for next-of-kin to make claims on behalf of their nearest and dearest.
More complex cases
In more complex cases such as these, it is imperative that you seek accurate advice regarding the legal issues. Accident Advice Helpline, along with our solicitor in Tow Law, have vast experience on all kinds of compensation claims, including next-of-kin claims.
For some people, they may have been involved in accidents that have left them permanently damaged and requiring long-term personal care. Inevitably, the majority of this care will be delivered by either the husband, wife or parent of those injured.
Buying in personal care is often not an option, simply because it is too expensive, so next-of-kin tend to do the majority of it themselves. Our solicitor in Tow Law has worked on similar cases previously and understands the need for sensitivity when dealing with such cases.
Large compensation claims
Not only are these cases more complex, but they also often involve a larger compensation settlement. The injuries are so severe, the impact so harsh, that the compensation figure can run into thousands, or in some cases even millions of pounds, when the results of the accident or negligence are so severe.
The financial justice sought by next-of-kin is often placed in a trust fund, so that the carer has access to the finances they need to make life more comfortable for their next-of-kin, not just now but in the future, too.
It can also be used to either adapt the current living premises or build customised premises. Likewise, there can be issues with transport, too, for which a compensation settlement can be used to make the necessary – but expensive – changes.
