Fatal injury claims arise when a person dies as a result of the negligent act of another. This type of action is known as a fatal injury action and is covered under part 4 of the Civil Liability Act 1961. Only one action may be brought against the wrong doer in respect of the death but this action may be brought on behalf of all of the deceased dependants. The action may be brought by the personal representative of the deceased or if at the expiration of the six months to the date there is no personal representative or no action has been brought by the personal representative then it may be brought by all or any of the dependants.
Tiernan & Company solicitors have dealt with many fatal injury claims and would be happy to discuss any issues you may have.
