Campaigning - fairness for families

The law in England and Wales treats bereaved families like second class citizens when they need to claim compensation after the death of a loved one who has been killed simply because someone was negligent. Of course, no amount of money can ever replace someone who has been killed, but the law treats bereaved families in Scotland with much greater understanding. The law in England and Wales needs to change, to be fairer to the families left behind after a loved one is killed.
