Have you suffered the loss of a member of your immediate family upon whom you were dependent? Are you concerned about how you will provide financially for your family amidst the initial emotional shock and grief?
If your relative’s death occurred as a result of the duties of their employment or as a result of another’s negligence, you and your family may be entitled to compensation for pecuniary damages (damages for loss of your relative’s income) and non-pecuniary damages (damages for loss of services once provided by your relative).
In some circumstances, statutory benefits can be payable shortly after lodgement of an accepted claim.
Strict time limits apply to dependency claims so it is important to seek legal advice to protect your interests. Contact us for a no-obligation initial consultation with one of our experienced legal practitioners in Toowoomba, Roma and Warwick.
