If you have lost a loved one as a result of a fatal accident that wasn’t their fault, it may be possible for their estate to make a claim. This type of claim can be brought by the executors or administrates of the estate and involves recovering losses the deceased could have claimed had they survived.
It is possible to claim against the estate for:
- General damages for the pain and suffering caused to the deceased.
- Special damages including losses incurred after the fatal accident but before their death such as medical expenses or lost wages.
- Funeral costs and expenses.
- Care received by the deceased before they died.
Our personal injury solicitor understand that you are going through an emotional and difficult time. We will therefore seek to minimise the stress placed on you during your claim and ensure we achieve the best possible outcome that will ease the financial burden.
