Civil Law Cast Episode 6: Fatal Accident Act Part 2 – financial dependency claims; the basics

In this episode Emily Formby QC and Romilly Cummerson continue their discussion about Fatal Accident Act claims by looking at financial dependency claims.  They look at who can make a claim, what a claim for financial dependency might encompass and at the simple forms of dependency calculations.  Since recording this episode, on 22 June 2021 the case of Chouza v Martin & Ord [2021] EWHC 1669 was handed down which looks at, among other things, a dependency calculation outside the Harris v Empress Motors fractions.
