A bereavement award can be made in the event that an accident has resulted in a death. This type of award can be made in addition to other claims that the deceased family can make.

In England and Wales, people entitled to claim a bereavement award are limited to a spouse, civil partner, both parents of a legitimate child under the age of 18 or the mother of an illegitimate child under the age of 18.
