Nothing can compensate family and relatives for a fatal accident to a loved one. It is important, however, that where possible lessons are learned and that adequate compensation is awarded to help towards financial security and for the pain and suffering of a family left behind.
Fatal accidents are fortunately quite rare but they do occur on more occasions than many imagine. According to the Health and Safety Commission report for 2004/5 220 workers were killed in fatal accidents and 361 members of the public were fatally injured as a result of workplace incidents. On the UK’s roads 3,221 people were killed in road accidents of whom 166 were children.
