Any road traffic accident can be a traumatising event, especially those that have resulted in a fatality.
Losing a loved one in a car accident is a devastating turn of events, and one that warrants the maximum amount in compensation. Receiving a compensation cheque can help make life a little easier financially, allowing you to focus on more important things without having to worry about the financial impact of your loss. Whether you were in the accident as well or not, you can make a claim to receive money for your loss if the accident has taken place within the past three years through Wyre Forest road traffic accidents claims.
Most importantly, the accident must have occurred as a result of someone else’s negligence. For example, if another motorist was using a handheld device behind the wheel or was driving under the influence, this negligence has been directly responsible for the accident, and they should be held accountable for the damage they have caused.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we are here to help make sure those that have lost loved ones in Wyre Forest road traffic accidents receive the money they are due in compensation. For over 15 years, we have been committed to helping those injured in accidents to receive the maximum amount, and have dealt with a number of fatal accident claims in that time as well.
How do fatal accident claims for Wyre Forest road traffic accidents work?
Under the Fatal Accidents Act 1976, those who have lost close relatives in a car accident are entitled to compensation.
Provided the loved one in question was a spouse, common law partner, or child under the age of 18, the claimant can potentially receive the fixed sum of £11,800. At Accident Advice Helpline, we know how upsetting making fatal accident claims after a road traffic accident can be, which is why we’re here to help.
