The passing of a loved one is probably the hardest thing you will ever have to deal with. It is a traumatic time and the emotional agony is often followed by financial hardship as you struggle to cope with the cost of day-to-day life, not to mention the stress and financial burden of making funeral arrangements.
But did you know that there is financial help at hand. Although a compensation payment will not bring back your loved one, it may go some of the way to helping to relieve the inevitable strain you will feel and you learn to cope without the person closest to.
Legal Request has a sensitive and dedicated team that specialises in recovering compensation for dependants of those who have passed away in fatal accidents. Read on to find out more.
If someone close to you has passed away in a fatal accident you must be able to prove that you were either financially dependent on the deceased, or dependent on their services, to be able to make a claim.
Whether your loved one passed away in a fatal car crash, an accident at work or in a physical attack, what is crucial in fatal accident claims is your ability to prove that there was a reasonable expectation of financial benefit from your deceased loved one.
Those who usually, but not exclusively, fall into the category of dependants include:
Claiming as a dependent in a fatal accident case is a complex area of law. However, with our help, you can help lighten the financial burden you may be feeling after your loved one was taken too soon.
The statutory sum recoverable is a fixed amount of £11,800 (although there are some exceptions to this, for example if the claim was on behalf of both parents of a child then the amount would be divided equally between them - ask one of our experts for more details).
Our experts will be able to guide you through this tough financial time and we promise to handle your claim in a sensitive, thorough and professional manner - and help you claim compensation to help you through this difficult time.
Everything was very simple and straightforward, with a great outcome at the end.
