What is included in a fatal accident claim?

Although no amount of money can bring your loved one back, making a fatal accident claim can help lighten your financial burden. Claims for fatal injury can include a Statutory Bereavement Award. This compensation is awarded in recognition of the grief someone has experienced after the death of a spouse or long term partner, or of a child under 18 years old, as well as a financial token in recognition that the person's death was wrongful.

There are also other costs and expenses that can be claimed for, including:

  • The pain and suffering of the deceased
  • Repayment of losses, for example, funeral expenses
  • Loss of income and financial support from the deceased
  • In some circumstances the cost of probate
  • Compensation for services the deceased would have performed (e.g. housework, childcare, etc.)
