Yes. Please speak to our specialist personal injury legal team for more information on your options.

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.  A bereavement award is a payment of compensation that is there to serve as a recognition of grief or a financial token/public recognition that the death was wrongful.

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.
