Claiming for Grief

Fatal accidents can occur in a number of situations. Frequently the death is caused by injuries arising due to the negligence of a third party. Even though the emotional loss of losing a loved one cannot be compensated, you can look into claiming for grief.

Such a claim entitles family members to be compensated for the medical expenses that have been spent on the victim, the financial loss if the deceased was the earning member of the family, funeral expenses, bereavement awards and losses which dependants have endured.

Qualified compensation Solicitors can help the family members of the deceased victim to obtain the compensatory amount they are entitled to, following the negligence of the other party. In claiming this compensation it is paramount that the accident was caused due to the negligence of another. Claiming for grief is essential so that the financial losses of the family can be restored.

In a successful compensation claim, the amount of compensation the family member receives varies depending on the extent of injuries that were sustained by the person, and whether they were the main income earner.

Food Poisoning
Mr W was involved in a food poisoning incident at a Dinner Dance. Cooks obtained an admission of liability swiftly from the hosts. Mr W’s symptoms did not settle, he required surgery and Cooks referred him to a Gastrointestinal Consultant to provide a final diagnosis. On receipt of this Mr W agreed an out of Court settlement of £20,000.00
"At first the Doctors didn’t know what was wrong with me, but Cooks never gave up and in the end I received a correct diagnosis, the appropriate treatment and a cheque for far more than I had expected."
