Who can make a fatal accident claim?

Anyone who is dependent on the deceased can make a fatal accident claim, according to the terms of the Fatal Accidents Act 1976 and whether or not the accident was caused by somebody else's negligence. A dependent is an individual who relies on financial or emotional support from the deceased and includes:

  • Children
  • Surviving Married or civil partner
  • Cohabiting partner of two years or more
  • Unmarried couples (living together as husband and wife/same sex couples for at least 2 years prior to death)

In some cases, former partners may also be entitled to compensation to help with day-to-day living. If youre unsure whether you qualify as a dependent, contact Grieves Solicitors for free legal advice.

What compensation am I entitled to?

The amount of financial assistance differs case by case, but a claim can cover:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Probate expenses
  • Childcare, DIY and housework costs

The deceased marital partner and children aged under 18 at the date of death are also entitled to a statutory bereavement award, which is a fixed sum of £15,120, and is in addition to any other claim put forward.
