Estate and Dependants Receive Damages for Fatal Crash

When there is a fatal accident involving a person with dependants, a claim for compensation may be able to be made not only by the estate of the deceased person but also by their dependants, whether children or adults.

In a recent case, the estate and dependants of a man who was killed when his motorcycle was struck by a car both brought proceedings against the driver's insurers. The estate was awarded a little over £10,000 and his children, the eldest of whom is in his 20s, were awarded a total of more than £220,000.
