Wrongful Death Claim

Wrongful Death Claim

It is a tragedy when a wrongful death occurs as a result of someone’s negligence. Family and friends are left to sort out finances and plan for the future. At Claims Direct we deal with wrongful death claims on a No Win No Fee basis and get you access to compensation to help those left behind.

If you think you are due compensation as a result of the wrongful death of a loved one call us for a free consultation on {{freephoneNumber}} or request a call back online. 

A death as a result of negligence or poor standards which could have been prevented means that you are able to receive compensation from a wrongful death claim. The claim can be made by the closest relative of a person who dies after suffering a fatal accident that was somebody else’s fault.

Your loved one might have been killed in a work accident or they might have died from a work-related disease. You might be grieving for a family member who has died due to medical negligence or they might have been killed in a car crash caused by someone else’s negligent driving. Nothing is going to bring this person back but making a claim can give some financial security.

Wrongful death claims in England and Wales can be brought under the Fatal Accidents Act 1976 by a surviving spouse, civil partner or parent of a child under 18. You can claim under the Act for compensation if the person who died provided financial support for the family or they were the main carer and you have to pay for alternative arrangements. You can also claim for funeral costs and compensation in recognition of your grief and suffering.

In Scotland wrongful death claims are covered by the Damages (Scotland) Act 2011 and claims can be made in similar circumstances to those in England and Wales by anyone from the “immediate family” of the person who died.

It’s hard enough to deal with a loved one’s death alone without having to worry about how you will pay for the funeral or cope with ongoing financial hardship. Whatever the cause of your loved one’s death, Claims Direct’s Personal Injury Lawyers can help you with a wrongful death claim and ensure that you get the compensation to assist you. Wrongful death claims are dealt with on a No Win No Fee basis which means there is no financial risk to you.
