Expert Personal Injury Solicitors for Fatal Claims
If a person dies due to an injury or illness caused by the negligence of another person(s) or company a claim can be made within 3 years of the death or from the time you realised that an injury or illness caused by a third party resulted in the death of a loved one.
Who Can Claim
If the deceased had a will then typically the executor of the estate will make the claim. If there is no will then the administrator of the estate can make a claim. If neither the executor or administrator make a claim then the dependents of the deceased may be able to claim.
How Fatal Claims Are Progressed
When an injury or illness causes death there usually is an inquest if police are not involved. The inquest is carried out by a coroner who will independently establish the cause of death and will write a report. If police have been involved in circumstances associated with the death then there is normally no inquest.
If you wish to make a claim over a fatality then the coroner’s report could contain information that supports your claim because the report will contain information on the causes of death which may support your claim.
How To Claim
You will need to provide evidence that support your claim that could include :
Witness statements and CCTV
Medical records and statements
Financial records that prove loss of earnings and costs
