  • Can next of kin claim/gain

    If the deceased left a will the executors can bring a claim, any award becomes part of the estate.
    If the deceased died intestate the nearest relative as set out by s.46 of the Administration of Estates Act 1945 can bring a claim, and apply for letters of administration to deal with the estate and any damages awarded
