Who can claim if my family member has been involved in a fatal car accident?

As fatal accident claim solicitors, we are faced with searching questions by the family of the deceased about who has authority to instruct a solicitor to pursue the investigations and claim against the person(s) at fault.

However, not everyone connected to the deceased can claim compensation. The law limits the type of people who can claim.

No Win No Fee No Worry Cycle Solicitors

Therefore the persons who can claim on behalf of the deceased are those close family members who were in some way “dependant” upon the deceased before and at the time of death which include:

  • Widow/Widower/Legal Partner
  • Deceased’s infant children
  • Parent of the deceased
  • Any person who was living with the deceased as a husband or wife immediately before the accident and was doing so for at least two years prior to the fatal accident claim.
