Who Can Claim Following a Fatal Accident?

Not everyone connected to the deceased can claim compensation following a fatal accident. The law limits the type of people who can claim. The word “family” and “dependants” are used to describe close family ties with the deceased such as children, wife or husband as this group of family members are often the most affected in a fatal accident claim and usually “dependant” upon the deceased.

Therefore the person(s) who can make a fatal accident claim on behalf of the deceased are those close family members who were in some way “dependant” upon the deceased before and at the time of death which include:

Also any person who was living with the deceased as husband or wife immediately before the accident and was doing so for at least two years prior to the accident may also be able to claim.

A fatal accident claim on behalf of the deceased can also be made if the deceased would have been able to claim compensation himself/herself at the time of death.

Fatal Accident Solicitor – Ronnie Hutcheon

This is my blog for the past month concerning enquires made to my firm from our website or recommendation by clients and third parties to seek professional, caring and sympathetic legal advice from the specialist fatal accident car claims solicitors.


Road Accidents – All 5 Occupants in Car Killed

This is a very tragic road accident where all occupants in the car were killed.  All passengers and the driver were teenagers. In represent two of the passengers an action is to be made against the driver of the vehicle (also killed in the accident).  As usual in all road traffic accident claims, the passengers will usually be innocent and a fatal road accident compensation claim will be made against the driver of the vehicle they were travelling in and/or the other driver in the third party vehicle who may also be at fault.

The consequences of the sudden death of all teenagers to the bereaved families are un-imanginable.  Yet the compensation for the loss of a children is an insult.  Join our campaign and help us change the law for bereavement compensation
