Dependency – Young single man
Young Single Man
Under a Fatal Accident Act claim, if living at home with his parents 33% deduction of net earnings. If he gets a flat of his own, it will be a 25% . When he marries, it will increase to 50% since one-half of the joint expenditure will not count as part of his living expenses. As the family increases, the available surplus will increase pro rata. A young unmarried victim at the date of trial or death will not normally be treated as an eternally single man.
