Deadly Traffic Accidents
Claims of deadly traffic accidents are the most demanding because they are unfortunately the most tragic. In cases where the victims are close friends or relatives who rode as passengers, there, all is even more tragic.

Peculiarities of a deadly traffic accident
The fundamental difference of a deadly traffic accident versus an injury claim is the fact that while an injured person can show to the court the effects of the injury and even be re-examined to help understand the various impacts, the loss due to death makes the claim more abstract.
Additionally, insurance companies often try to attribute the death (which is often not instantaneous, but occurs after some time and interventions and may be linked to the overall health of the victim) to other causes rather than to the accident. They aim to reduce compensation therefore medical and technical support is critical.
Also the technical documentation of the circumstances of the accident and the vehicle status should be more detailed: the speed estimation, the level of alcohol in the blood, the condition of the road surface are some of the dimensions a specialist is called to provide. He must work perfectly well with a competent lawyer to demand what you are entitled to.
See below the detail what you can claim in case of a traffic accident with property and personal injuries:
A) Loss of vehicle
Repair, compensation for total destruction or decrease of market value, transport costs and storage of the vehicle, destroyed personal property of the deceased, any other costs for the treatment of the deceased (for possible hospitalization after the traffic accident and up to his/her death) including the exclusive nurse or whoever acted as exclusive nurse, for cost of improved nutrition, etc.
B) Funeral-Burial Expenses
In funeral costs are included all expenses referring to the act of burial of the person and the relevant ceremony. Funeral-Burial Expenses are entitled to be requested by the heirs jointly or by the heir who paid.
C) Compensation for lack of material support, contribution services.
He who bears compensation for killing someone else takes over and compensate all those persons who might require material support from the victim. Such a claim are entitled to request: spouse, parents, children, grandfather, grandmother and siblings. Especially in cases of foreigner’s compensation, this becomes even more complicated, especially if the country of origin is not part of the European Union.
D) Compensation for mental anguish.
Deprivation of a beloved person creates a vacum which is significant and permanent on the close circle of relatives of the victim. This deprivation is called upon the court to assess and is called mental anguish.
See our related article on this important concept as it is a very important part of a compensation linked to the fatal accident.
E) Medical and Pharmaceutical Expenses
In case of hospitalization before the death, the one responsible, often the insurance company, assumes all hospitalization expenses not covered by the Insurance of the victim, including the cost of an exclusive nurse.
