Compensation for bereaved family

When it comes to life changing accidents and even loss of life, it is not only the person involved who may be directly affected. Loved ones and members of the family can also suffer as the result of a serious accident, and the impact that an event such as this may have on their lives can continue to live with them forever.

Losing a loved one is a terrible time for anyone, but I can be made particularly difficult if this loss is as a result of negligence on behalf of another party – essentially an accident that could have been avoided. If you have lost a family member or friend in this way and have suffered as a result, either financially or emotionally, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. 

Who could I make a claim against?

When it comes to making a claim for compensation you can generally launch a case against anyone who has been negligent towards a loved one, and you have suffered a loss as a result. This could include an employer who has not taken the correct workplace safety precautions to ensure the safety of your love one, or a negligent member of the public who may have caused them a serious injury – such as another road user.

What could I claim for?

When it comes to claiming as a bereaved family member you will usually be claiming for the loss of life. This could have occurred in a number of ways, but if you can prove negligence on behalf of a third party then you could have an eligible compensation claim. 

There are many examples of where you could make a compensation claim and these include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents – if your loved one was involved in a motor vehicle accident and killed or seriously injured through the negligence of another driver
  • Workplace negligence – if your loved one was killed or seriously injured as the result of a workplace accident which could have been avoided with better safety precautions or the provision of more adequate safety equipment
  • Transport accidents – if your loved one was killed or seriously injured as the result of a public transport accident then you could be eligible to make a claim against the relevant authorities.

What injuries could I claim for?

When it comes to claiming as a bereaved family you can generally claim for:

  • Mental disability
  • Total or permanent physical disability
  • Death.
