These claims are complex and there may be competing interests between beneficiaries. Heads of claim might include:
Funeral and associated expenses
Statutory bereavement damages
Damages for pain and suffering prior to the deceased’s death
Loss of financial dependency upon the deceased
Loss of other services provided by the deceased
The circumstances surrounding the fatality may have caused the involvement of other interested parties such as the Police, Crown prosecution service or HM Coroner. This is one of the reasons that cases involving fatalities may not be straight forward.
