Losing a loved one is a devastating and traumatic event; but what happens if that tragic loss was caused by an accident that could have been avoided? Whilst money can never compensate for the death of a loved one, it can sometimes alleviate financial pressures and hardships caused by the loss of that person.
In amongst the grief of coping with bereavement, those left behind are sometimes faced with unanswered questions surrounding an accident.
This is understandably an incredibly distressing position to be in, and often families will feel they are unable to fully come to terms with what has happened without those questions being addressed. In those circumstances, the family may wish to instruct a solicitor to investigate a potential claim.
Sadly, nothing will ever bring a loved one back. A successful personal injury claim will only be able to achieve a financial settlement as the ultimate outcome.
It may be that the deceased was the main bread-winner of the family, or was responsible for childcare or the running of the household, meaning that, after their death, worries as to making ends meet or looking after children or other relatives add to the considerable burdens on those left behind. A financial settlement can mean that, whilst attempting to come to terms with the gulf left by the loss of a loved one, financial worries can be dealt with without adding to that burden.
In considering financial settlement, a solicitor will consider whether there has been a loss of financial dependency and also whether there has been a loss of services (for example if the deceased carried out DIY, childcare or perhaps caring for a relative) as well as a claim for the pain and suffering endured by the deceased before their death, funeral expenses and a ‘bereavement award’, that is, an award set by law for a surviving spouse or surviving parents of a child aged under 18.
In these circumstances, our expert team here at JCP Solicitors will be able to advise you fully and sympathetically on any compensation that may be available
We have a wealth of experience in dealing with Fatal Accident claims, and you can expect to receive a sympathetic ear, professional advice and appropriate compensation.
