Types of Fatal Accident

Fatal accident claims cover any situations where someone dies in an accident that was caused by another party’s negligence. At Jones Whyte, we have helped families in a wide range of fatal accident claims, including those involving accidents in the workplace, in public places and in other countries. We also have experience representing clients in fatal road traffic accident claims. A Fatal Accident Inquiry may be convened in any of these situations, which we can also provide legal advice and representation for.

Regardless of the nature of the accident in which your loved one died, we will use our extensive knowledge and experience in fatal accident claims to get you the outcome you need at this difficult time.

What Can You Claim For?

The two general areas that you may be able to claim compensation for are:

  • the grief and suffering you have experienced following the death of your loved one (known as bereavement damages); and
  • the loss of financial support following the victim’s death (known as loss of dependency).

To find out more about these two areas of fatal accident claims, see our dedicated Bereavement Damages and Loss of Dependency pages, or contact us to receive advice tailored to your particular circumstances. We operate an open-door policy, so please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Who Can Make a Fatal Accident Claim?

This will depend on the nature of the claim, however generally this will include the spouse, civil partner, cohabitee, parents, children and siblings of the deceased. You should seek legal advice to find out if you are eligible to claim compensation following a fatal accident involving someone close to you.
