Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone have a definitive answer on this question?

    A claim is at the stage where the defendant ( a large corporation ) has admitted causation and made an initial payment in recognition of this, further damages are being assessed, and will if necessary in case of a dispute go to an independant arbitrator agreed to by all parties.

    Should the claimant/plaintiff die in this interim period would the NOK/family, be entitled to the further damages, as the causation has already been established, getting various answers, ranging from out right no, to an amount judged to cover the hardship, suffering and effect on lifestyle of the NOK might be applicable.
  2. I think your best bet would be to run this past a brief Mate.

  3. Yes your right,got a definitive answer from a legal beagle, useful as a reference should anyone else come across this.

    The claim can be continued via the deceased estate after death, providing it is not intestate this can be achieved using the executor of a will.So keep your house "in order" as the saying goes.

    Would corporate manslaughter also be a consideration?
