Modern Family Living Let Down By The Fatal Accidents Act 1976 (Pt 2)
Following in from Part 1 of this Article, the fatal accident laws are stuck in the past. Today the family unit is more complex and diverse. Children are born to different mothers from the same father and belong to different families. A multicultural population with differing religious beliefs, and couples now choosing to live together rather than get married. We now have same sex marriages something that was never recognised in law 10 years ago let alone 40 years since the Fatal Accidents Act 1976.
It is clear the law relating to fatal accident claims has not kept pace with our changing society causing injustice to a family already torn-apart by the loss of a loved one. This unnecessary pain is called ‘justice’ full of anachronisms sub-clauses and cobwebs. Judges and the Government are only concerned with protecting large multinational insurance companies bottom line and the perpetrators of the unlawful killing rather than the victims left behind.
What Then Can Be Done Following a Fatal Accident Claim?
We can lobby Parliament to change the law and sign our E-Petition on bereavement awards. Help get the Fatal Accident Act 1976 changed and kept up to date.
However despite the injudicious behaviour of our Judges and Government as fatal accident claims solicitor we will be able to claim compensation for bereaved families on the best possible terms under the law as it stands.
There is movement to change the fatal accident laws and we shall support such a change any way we can. It will come, eventually when someone decides to join the dots.
