I have lost a loved one due to a farm accident: can I still claim for compensation?
Losing a loved one to a farm accident is extremely difficult to come to terms with. It is a common question whether a family member can still pursue a claim for compensation on behalf of the deceased.
The estate of the deceased is entitled to take a claim in relation to an accident if a claim can be established on the facts. Any compensation will be paid into the estate and will be divided as part of the probate process to any beneficiaries under a will or the rules of intestacy. There may also be circumstances where a dependent relative can make a claim as well.
What will I receive compensation for in a farm accident claim?
Compensation can be awarded for a range of issues, including:
Pain and suffering
Reduction in quality of life, or being unable to enjoy normal activities
Financial losses, such as loss of earnings
Long-term care, for example, if your child will need help throughout his or her life
How much farm accident compensation will I receive?
The amount of farm accident compensation you may receive can vary significantly depending on numerous factors, including the specifics of your case, the severity of your injuries, and the liability of the parties involved. There is no fixed or predetermined amount, as each case is unique.
If you speak to us about your case, we will be able to give you an initial idea of the range of compensation that is generally awarded for the type of injury you have sustained.
How can I finance a farm accident compensation claim?
We know that funding a compensation claim might be a worry, so we offer a range of options. These include:
Legal expenses cover
After the Event insurance (ATE insurance)
We will be happy to discuss funding with you to find the best option for your circumstances.
What is the time limit for bringing a farm accident compensation claim?
In the UK, the standard time limit for personal injury claims, including farm accident claims, is generally three years from the date of the accident or from the date when you first became aware of your injuries. This is stipulated under the Limitation Act 1980.
For the ROI, the standard time limit is generally two years for a farm accident claim.
