Compensation Row (2)

It would appear that the family of Jean Charles De Menezes can look forward to considerably more than the £11,000 offered to the families of those murdered on July 7th. An initial payment of £15,000 has already been offered whilst figures up to £500,000 are being quoted.

My initial post on the subject suggests Jean Charles was fleeing police at the time, that no longer appears to be true.

Apparently whether compensation is to be given or not, and how much, will be decided by the independent inquiry. I’ve no doubt they’ll say his family must receive compensation, if to do nothing more than keep them quiet, although I wonder what sort of figure we’ll be looking at?

It was a tragic accident, and no parent should have to go through such a thing (the pain of burying your child is unbelievable), but I hope the independent police complains commission doesn’t go overboard – If reports are true, then they’ve already been offered £500,000 and have rejected it.

Many workers suffer an accident at work in their professional lifetime. Unfortunately some are unsure of their rights and if they have a claim for compensation. Unfortunately many people attempt frivolous law suits attempting to get money out of their employer, while genuinely injured people who are out of work stay quiet. People should know their rights they may be eligible for compensation to cover medical bills or time out of work. if you are worried about jeopardising your job talk to a professional for advice about your rights and look at other peoples case studies to give you an idea of what other people have successfully claimed for.
