2.If a family member of the deceased is under 18 years old, he can start a claim when he turns 18 and will have three years to make a fatal accident compensation claim.

3.If the victim died of an industrial disease, time limit of three years applies from the date of death.

4.Fatalities resulting from criminal acts as well as those which took place onboard cruise ships and aircrafts have a strict time limit of two years.

5.Time limit of three years applies from the date of death if the victim died as a result of clinical negligence.

6.If the victim was a child, the family members can pursue a fatal accident compensation claim anytime before the child reached 21 years of age.
