Those able to claim fall into a wide and varied categories:
- Civil Partners

- Majority of Family Members
- Children of the Deceased
- A Person Living with the Deceased for 2 Years Prior to Death
To move forwards with a claim, dependents are required to evidence the financial loss suffered due to the situation upon death. Should you have reasonable expectation to be in receipt of a future benefit from the deceased, please discuss this with your solicitor.

Claims can be made for bereavement damages and funeral costs. You may wish to pursue compensation for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity experienced alongside dependency. In addition, damage to property and personal effects can be added to your application. Finally, should death have occurred due to criminal activity we will include this.
