Legal Leaders in Fatal Accidents
Bradley Bayly Legal has extensive experience in conducting claims for clients who have suffered as a result of fatal accidents or other serious injury by accident. Fatal accident claims are generally complex and require skilled and experienced lawyers to conduct the legal action.
Losing a loved one in a fatal accident has wide-ranging and devastating effects. Whether you have suffered physical, mental or financial loss resulting from the wrongful death of a relative, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your suffering.
The team at Bradley Bayly Legal understand that you have already had so much to deal with and that you need time to grieve over your loss. We are experienced in conducting claims in a compassionate manner in order to minimise the stress you might otherwise feel when making a compensation claim.
Some of the common examples of fatal accident claims which arise when a close relative dies as a result of someone else’s negligence are accidents:
- at work;
- caused by the driver of a motor vehicle;
- at building and construction sites;
- on mine sites;
- caused by a health care provider; or
- that happen in an aged care facility.
Sometimes, family members such as a wife, husband, de facto partner, child, parent, sister or brother, who were dependent on a loved one who has died in a motor vehicle which was accident caused by the negligence or fault of another driver, may be entitled to compensation.
Even where the at-fault driver who caused the accident has also died, Bradley Bayly Legal will be able to advise you on whether it still may be possible to make a claim against the Insurance Commission of WA.
Where a loved one who you were dependent on dies as a result of a workplace accident, dependent spouses, parents, children or step-children may be entitled to receive certain benefits under the provisions of the Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981. The lawyers at Bradly Bayly Legal are experienced in assessing the likely amounts payable in such complex matters, based on an assessment of your degree of financial dependency and how much compensation your loved one received as a worker prior to their death.
