Can you claim following a Fatal Accident Claim in Greece?

Not everyone who had connections to the deceased can claim compensation following a fatal accident. A strong connection has to be established with the deceased for someone to be entitled to non pecuniary damages for emotional pain.

The persons who can claim in a Fatal Accident case under Greek law include:

  • Spouse
  • Children
  • Grandchildren
  • Parents
  • Brothers and Sisters
  • In laws


In case of a Greek fatal accident case, where the victim is not a Greek citizen, it used to be the case that the persons who were entitled to claim had to be decided by the law of the deceased’s jurisdiction. However, Greek case law in fatal accident claims with a foreign element slowly departs from this position and now persons that could not previously claim may be able to do so provided they fall within the categories described above.

To ascertain whether you can claim, contact us now to discuss your individual case on its specific facts.

Please note that a civil claim for fatal accident compensation will not result in a punishment for the party at fault and that in most cases any compensation will be paid by an insurer. While pursuing a compensation claim over the death of your loved one can help you ascertain what happened you could always prosecute the wrongdoer through the Greek criminal justice system.
