Fatal car accidents have a devastating impact on the family and friends of victims. Tragically, they’re relatively common. In 2017, there were 1,227 deaths on Australia’s roads. If a member of your family has been killed in a fatal road accident, you may be eligible to claim compensation.
What can I be compensated for?
You may be compensated for medical or hospital expenses, funeral or cremation expenses, loss of financial support if the deceased was the breadwinner in the family or for the emotional impact the accident has had on you personally.

Who is entitled to make a claim?
You may be entitled to make a claim if you’re a family member of the deceased. For example, spouse, parent, sibling or child. You may also be able to make a claim if you witnessed the accident or were otherwise sufficiently close to the person and you have suffered psychologically as a result of the death.
