Fatal Accident Damages: A Masterclass

The law relating to damages is a highly specialised area of practice and everyone involved in a fatal case benefits from a detailed knowledge of the relevant law and practice.

In this Masterclass, we look at the central issues relating to fatal accident damages. Topics to be covered include:

  • Damages on behalf of the estate.
  • Fatal Accident Act damages including the growing importance of non-financial claims.
  • Who is a dependant?
  • Who can claim bereavement damages?
  • The relevant multipliers (and will this change).
  • Damages for pain and suffering prior to death.
  • Damages for reduced life expectancy.
  • Claims for psychiatric injury to others after a death.

The Masterclass is highly practical and will include a number of useful checklists, questionnaires and draft schedules.

Who should attend?

This will be of interest to:

  • Claimant and defendant solicitors who need a detailed knowledge of the law and practice in this area.
  • Insurers and anyone in the insurance industry who deals with fatal cases.
  • Care experts who, increasingly, are being asked to report in relation to dependency claims.
