Fatal Accident and Injury Compensation Claims

If you’ve lost a loved one as a result of an accident that wasn’t their fault, our personal injury solicitors can provide specialist guidance on making a fatal accident compensation claim.

After losing someone unexpectedly, taking legal advice is probably the last thing on your mind, but you’ll need specialist advice from a fatal injury claims solicitor to ascertain whether compensation is recoverable.

Sensitivity and commitment at every step

Our specialist team are experienced in managing fatal accident claims. We understand your emotional difficulties and you can feel confident that we’ll support you through every step of the legal process.

Compensation claims involving fatal accidents are dealt with in two parts. The first part of the claim is for the pain and suffering of the victim, from the time of the accident up until the date of death.

The second part of the fatal injury claims process is to provide financially for the victim’s family. You may be eligible to make a compensation claim if you’re a relative or ‘dependent’ of the deceased; however the interpretation of ‘dependent’ is broad.

You can also claim for financial losses, such as funeral expenses.

We know that no amount of money can adequately compensate you for the loss of a loved one; but receiving compensation for a fatal accident can remove the financial burden and help you achieve the security you need.
