What is a Wrongful Death Case

If you have been wondering as to what is a wrongful death case, here is information which can assist you. When a person loses their life due to the negligence of some other person, it is known as wrongful death. There can be many causes for such a death and there may be one or more persons responsible for the death. The family members of the victim can pursue a case against the person who has caused the death. The Fatal Accidents Act 1976 allows the family members of the victim to recover compensation in such situations.

This can cover cases like negligent driving, medical negligence as well as workplace accidents.  Dependents can make a claim for compensation from the third party. The amount of the claim will vary depending on the individual circumstances of each case. If any of your family members has lost his/her life due to the negligence of some other person, you can pursue a claim by instructing a Solicitor and taking legal action.

Parents can pursue cases for their children and children can do the same for their parents. Specialist personal injury Solicitors can make the claims process easier for you.
