People can die all the time and unfortunate as it is that is the way the world works. Although, if any of the deaths have been through someone else’s negligence or recklessness, it will be the grieving family left behind that will feel it the most.
The feelings they will have will probably be anger and resentment, if this is the case they should call Accident Advice Helpline and talk to their solicitors in Fife, so they can make a fatal injury claim for compensation.
We understand that no amount of compensation will make the situation any better or bring your loved one back, but hopefully it should ease the worry of any financial problems the family may have.
We are very sorry for your loss, and we are sorry for you needing to use the solicitors in Fife to make a fatal injury claim
Unfortunately a death can happen in many different types of ways, for example:
- A road traffic accident
- A fall from height
- An industrial illness or disease
- A work related accident
- Severe food poisoning
You are should consider making a fatal injury claim using the solicitors in Fife, if the accident was the fault of, or caused through the negligence of anyone other than the deceased.
In the majority of injury claims, usually there is a time limit of three years from the date of the accident. But there are some exceptions, such as:
- If the injuries sustained mean that the victim does not die immediately but survives for a length of time up to three years after the accident, then the period for claiming is three years from the date of death, not the accident.
- If the accident caused a mental disability, the time period does not commence until they are no longer mentally disabled, and therefore might create a longer period in which to claim.
- In the case of an industrial illness or disease the victim might not have been aware of the problem being connected to a particular field of employment until many years later. The family has three years from the date of death to make the claim.
However or whenever the fatal accident occurred, because it is such a complex and time-consuming process at a very traumatic and distressing time, the family should seek the help of specialists to deal with their claim for compensation
