Claims For Bereavement Damages
Bereavement damages, sometimes known as a bereavement award, is financial compensation, awarded to the partner of the deceased following the death of a loved one who has died after an illness or injury caused in whole or in part by another.
In England and Wales, these damages can currently only be claimed by the deceased person’s spouse or civil partner, or the parents of a minor, if they were unmarried and under the age of 18.
Everyone knows that no amount of money can make up for the loss of a loved one, but the purpose of bereavement damages is to recognise, as far as is possible, the loss, together with the grief and sorrow caused by the death of the person concerned.
As specialists in the field, Tinsdills are able to help you claim the bereavement damages to which you are entitled, following the death of a loved one.
