Petition to Increase the Award

About the Petition

Here at fatal accident claims we have considered that even a token value for the loss of a loved one following a fatal accident compensation claim (known as a bereavement award) of £12,980 is too low.

Yes no amount of money following the death of a close family member can compensate for the loss but to put the “token” value (set by the Government) at such a low level is quite simply an insult to grieving families.

Advice for Grieving Families

Often we are involved in conversations with families who have lost a loved one to explain to them that the value society (the Government) have placed on a family member is not suppose to compensate their loss but it is simply a marker or token of the loss.

This is not right.  Anyone killed following a fatal accident, being a fatal car accident claim or a fatal accident at work claim must have more than simply a token amount to represent the worth of such a priceless loss.  To offer a token is an insult.  Yes we appreciate that the insurance industry (who will pay the bereavement award, not the Government) will not be able to provide £Millions in compensation just for the death alone, but at least provide an amount that is beyond a token.
