Fatal Injury Compensation Amounts

Losing a loved one as a result of a fatal accident can be devastating. The situation can be even more miserable if the deceased has left behind independents. With funeral costs to deal with and moving on with life may not be easy. To help you overcome financial strains in the future, we have expert fatal injury compensation claim solicitors in our team who can help you recover compensation. If a member of your family has been killed in an accident that was caused by the negligence of a third party, we can help you recover compensation.

Given below is information on the types of compensation awards that you may be eligible to recover following the death of a loved one.

Actual Losses – this can include administrative costs such as funeral expenses and the cost of care for the injured person. This will also include loss of earnings if the death was not immediate. If other financial losses such as costs of medical care, nursing care, cost of carer, travelling expenses, prescription costs and private health care incurred, you may be eligible to recover compensation.

Losses for Dependency – dependents who relied on the income of the deceased will be eligible to recover additional compensation for loss for dependency. When awarding compensation for loss for dependency, a number of factors will be taken into consideration. This will include income of the deceased, loss of pension, etc.

Bereavement – a lump sum may be payable to the spouse of the deceased or the parents. Currently, this amount stands at £11,800. The parents may only be eligible to recover compensation for bereavement if the deceased was under the age of 18 and was not married.

Pain and Suffering – if death was not immediate, compensation for pain and suffering will also be awarded. This is especially when the victim contracted an industrial disease and suffered for a long time before death occurred.
