Fatal Accident Claims

Not only is the death of a loved one a devastating and traumatic experience, it can also put immense financial strain on yourself and your family. If the fatal accident was caused by the negligence of a third party Accident Assistance could help you make a claim.

Types of Claim

There are 2 parts to a fatal accident claim along with a separate statutory award for bereavement.

  • Victim’s claim: If the victim’s death wasn’t instant there’s a high chance that they experienced physical and/or emotional pain before the death. Compensation will be awarded for this along with any financial losses that the victim had during the stress period.
  • Dependent’s claim: If the affected family were financially dependent on the victim (for example, they may have been the only earner in the household), they can make a claim for the loss of support.
  • Statutory award for bereavement: This is a lump sum of £11,800 (as of 1st January 2008) paid by the negligent third party in the result of a successful claim.
