A thorough understanding of how to conduct fatal accident claims is essential in order to calculate and secure maximum damages for dependents. Fatal Accidents deals with everything from the inception of a claim to its conclusion. The focus is both practical and comprehensive and includes clear explanations of areas that are usually only available in more encyclopedic publications.

Key contents include: -

  • claims under the Law Reform (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1934
  • claims under the Fatal Accidents Act 1976
  • apportionment and interest
  • claims for psychiatric injury
  • applications for compensation to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority
  • law and procedure relating to inquests.
Each chapter begins with a concise summary which should allow the busy practitioner to pick up the salient points with ease. Relevant precedents, statutes and schedules of loss are appended.
