Fatal Accident Claims

Fatal Accident Claims

Claims for damages following a fatal accident, generally seek to make provisions for the spouse and/or children of a person who has died as a result of a injury or disease caused by another’s negligence. In Western Australia these claimes fall under the provisions of the Fatal Accidents Act 1959 (WA).

The claim is for the financial dependency of the spouse and/or children of the deceased and does not include damages for non-economic loss such as grief and mental suffering.
