If a family member on whom you were dependent has died as a result of an accident which was not their fault then you, along with any other dependents, may be entitled to make a claim for compensation*. Such claims* are made to ease any financial hardship which has occurred as a result of the fatal injury*.

The dependents of the deceased person may bring a claim for compensation* due to the wrongful death of their family member.

Whilst there may be many “dependents” it should be noted that only one claim can be brought on behalf of all of the dependents.

That person will seek damages* for any loss suffered as a result of the fatal accident on behalf of all of the deceased’s dependents.

If you would like more information on the Fatal Injury compensation claims* process please contact us on Freephone 1800 200 618 or email info@andersongallagher.ie.
