If one of your family members or a loved one was suddenly in an accident which caused their death, then this would be a terrible and distressing situation. If their death was caused through somebody’s negligence and recklessness, it would be even worse and you may be entitled to make a fatal injury claim using the solicitors in Etchingham.
Losing a loved one in an accident that was not their fault, and using solicitors in Etchingham to make a fatal injury claim
If you lost your loved one through a terminal illness, then this is bad enough, but what if you found out it was because of someone else that they died? Then it would be very devastating and the shock could be life destroying.
The family could be left with severe financial problems, and although there are state benefits to help, they cannot replace a wage, or pay for the childcare if it was a mother that was killed.
Anyone that was dependent on the deceased is entitled to make a fatal injury claim, and this could ease the financial burden greatly. We know that no amount of money will bring them back, but it can help make life just a little easier for those left behind.
The first part of the familiy’s fatal injury claim
The first part of the claim would be statutory bereavement damages. This is only paid once, so if more than one person proves to have been dependent on the deceased, the amount should be shared between them. There are many other things to consider when making the claim, for instance:
- Loss of income, including what they would have earned in the future
- Childcare costs
- Cost of doing jobs the deceased would have done, such as gardening, cleaning decorating etc.
- Funeral costs
- Probate costs
- The pain and suffering of the deceased if they were aware of pain before they died.
All costs and losses will be considered when the family makes a fatal injury claim.
