Hit and Run Car Accidents

A young expecting couple had tragically died recently after a stolen vehicle struck them in Alexandra Hills.

The offender is a 17 year old boy. He was taken into custody and has a string of charges laid against him:

  • two counts of murder
  • one count of dangerous operation of a vehicle (adversely affected by an intoxicating substance)
  • two counts of burglary
  • one count of unlawful use of a motor vehicle
  • one count of attempted unlawful use of a motor vehicle

It is unfortunate that this is the reality for some. In light of such situation, and as a family member or a loved one, there is the avenue to pursue a compensation claim.

This claim is also known as dependency claim or a nervous shock claim. More information is also in our previous posts below:

In short, these claims can be lodged by a family member or loved one who depended on the deceased.

This includes, but is not limited to, monetary assistance for current circumstances and future, personal care, and, household work.

No matter the circumstances surrounding the incident, the passing of a loved one is devastating. Injuries of a psychiatric or psychological nature affects daily life – sometimes to a very detrimental degree.
