Fatal road accident claims

Being killed in a car accident is one of the most tragic types of accident someone can have. Not only has it caused the unnecessary death or deaths of a person but it affects the family, relatives and friends of the deceased.

Liability for a car accident involving a death is the same as for someone making a claim who survives but is injured. Obviously, however, where an individual dies, they personally cannot make a claim.

However, the following groups can make a claim on behalf of the deceased:

  1. Dependents of the deceased such as a spouse or children
  2. Close relatives such as a spouse/civil partner
  3. The deceased’s estate

The legal position can be quite complicated in relation to fatal claims, however, at Aequitas Legal, we have acted in many such cases and can advise you individually as to whether you are entitled to any compensation because of a death.

Such compensation can include compensation for:

  • Bereavement damages for the loss of a close family member
  • Funeral expenses
  • Compensation for any pain suffered by the deceased before they passed away
  • Monies representing the deceased income to ensure continued financial support for a dependent who relied on the deceased financially
  • Compensation for the cost of caring, for example, if the deceased was a mother who cared for a child/children
