Our specialist Criminal Injury Lawyers are highly experienced in these challenging cases
Our specialist Criminal Injury Lawyers here at Price Slater Gawne have acted on many of cases where the deceased has been murdered or killed on a night out, at a public event such as a festival, football match, concert, sporting even or at work, for example the emergency services, prison officers, door men, teachers, or in their own home by burglars or due to domestic violence.
There is a time limit of two years on claims so we would ask you not to delay. To make a claim, you need to satisfy the following criteria:
There are three routes to compensation:
Where the victim died as a result of the injury and the estate paid for the funeral, no compensation other than funeral expenses will be paid to the deceased’s estate. Awards for loss of earnings and special expenses will be made to the dependants, not to the deceased’s estate.
The general rule is that if a person dies as a direct result of his/her injuries, the dependants can claim a standard compensation award for bereavement, loss of dependency on the deceased’s earnings and services, and they can claim for special expenses.
Where someone witnesses the death of someone with whom they have close ties of love and affection, they can claim for the emotional and psychological effects of witnessing the event. They need to satisfy the following before making a claim:
Medical evidence will need to be submitted to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) to prove the existence of the psychiatric illness.
