In addition, if your partner carried out domestic duties around the house e.g. mowing, cooking, cleaning etc, you can make a claim for the loss of those domestic services from the date of the accident until the date your deceased partner would otherwise (according to certain statistics) have lived to.

If you have suffered a psychiatric condition as a result of the sudden death of your loved one, you can bring a claim for damages and loss arising from that psychiatric condition.
