Fatal accident claims

Fatal accident claims

Many fatal accident claims are brought by the ‘next of kin’ on behalf of the deceased. This is generally the widow or widower, parent of a child.  If the deceased left a will then the person entitled to make a fatal accident claim for compensation must proceed by the wishes left in the will.

Dependency Claims

Who is a dependent upon the deceased is defined by the law, which is governed by the Fatal Accidents Act 1976.  Again this is usually, in simple terms, what most people regard as the ‘next of kin.’  Full details of who can make a dependency claim please click on our page on this topic.
