How we can help you
A fatal accident devastates the lives of everyone involved.
These tragic accidents often leave family members struggling, not only to cope with their shock and grief, but also to cope with the financial strains and hardship that such a tragedy could bring.
Relieving the burden and helping with your claim
Our Serious Injury team has supported many families in making claims in respect of fatal accidents, whether caused by a road-traffic accident, an accident at work, an assault, industrial disease, public or employer’s liability or medical negligence.
Our Serious Injury lawyers are specialists in advising throughout the process, from the notification of the death to investigations by the police, the Health and Safety Executive and the Coroner. We will obtain the information and provide the representation required to help you through all of these issues, including any criminal proceedings and inquests.
How is a fatal accident compensation claim made?
There are two types of claim in relation to fatal accidents.
The first is the deceased’s own claim which compensates for physical pain and suffering; compensation also includes financial losses suffered by the deceased between the date of the injury and the date of death, including funeral expenses.
The second is the claim brought on behalf of dependants of the deceased and which aims to help those who were financially dependent on the deceased. As well as the dependency claim, in fatal accidents there is a fixed award for bereavement of £12,950.
Our Serious Injury lawyers are experienced in dealing with these sensitive and difficult claims; they will guide you through the process and advise you about the possibility of obtaining compensation.
