Bereavement award for fatal accidents
The bereavement award for fatal accidents has been increased to £15,210.00 for the death of a spouse, civil partner or child under the age of 18, where the death occurred after 1st May 2020. Fatal accidents can include death caused by negligent medical treatment.
It is always difficult to lose a loved one but particularly so, where they have been lost unexpectedly because treatment has gone wrong. We understand that whilst no amount of money can bring them back, losing them may have left you in financial difficulties and compensation such as the bereavement award may go some way to reducing that hardship.
If you have concerns that your loved one may have received incorrect treatment, contact Graystons and one of our specialist clinical negligence lawyers can guide you through your options, including no win, no fee funding.
