Married man with two children
Fatal Accident Act dependency claim is 75% of net earnings or put it in another way, deductions represent 25% of net earnings where children are involved. The items of joint expenditure such as rent and utility bills would not significantly increase with the family unit and therefore will remain at about 33% of net earnings.
For a lost years claim, one-quarter (ie family of four) of the joint expenditure is to be added to living expenses solely attributable to the victim, say 8%.The resulting deduction for living expenses would be 25% + 8% ie 33% off the net earnings.
