The law says who can make a claim
The law says who is able to compensation in these cases, and it is basically anyone that was dependent on the deceased. This could be because they acted as your carer which you now have to pay for, or because you now have to employ childminders to look after the children. These are just examples of the extra financial burdens that you would not have if they were still around.
