Losing a loved one in a sudden, unexpected way is one of the most difficult experiences any of us will ever have to deal with. But losing a loved one because of someone else’s negligence can be particularly difficult to come to terms with. We understand no amount of compensation can make up for the untimely death of your loved one, but it may help you overcome your financial struggles, and gain some justice. It is essential that you have an experienced solicitor assisting you, helping to shine a light into the future, if the worst happens. Obviously having dealt with many cases, on occasions the legal issues can be complex. Our Serious Injury Team has the required expertise in fatal accident claims and are dedicated to ensuring you are treated sympathetically and with compassion, whilst providing you with the best possible care and support that we can.

How We Can Help You Claim Compensation For A Fatal Accident Involving A Loved One

Over the past 40 years, our specialist serious injury solicitors have successfully represented clients by recovering compensation for those who have lost loved ones, and suffered personal tragedy as a consequence of a fatal accident.

After a tragedy such as this, quite often you will want answers as to how and why this has happened and whether you can seek justice for your loved one. We can legally represent loved ones at inquests to help investigate the cause of death, and who is responsible. It is after you have discovered what has happened and why, that you may need advice and support to help you come to terms with the financial stress and worry of your loss.

As part of a fatal accident claim, we can recover compensation for the pain and suffering of your loved one between injury and death, financial losses such as loss of earnings, funeral expenses and a lump sum “bereavement award”. We can then help immediate family and the “dependents” left behind ensuring that they are provided with the financial stability they require for the future. Dependents include spouses, children, parents, siblings, partners and civil partners. Compensation can include loss of income from earnings, loss of pension, or even loss of anticipated gifts and services such as DIY.

Our specialist serious injury solicitors aim to help you to recover the rightful amount of compensation you deserve, whilst striving to restore your life and alleviate your financial struggles by getting early interim payments to help you during the claims process.

How To Make A Fatal Accident Compensation Claim

In most personal injury claims, there is a three year time limit for bringing a claim. In fatal accident claims, the limitation period for starting a claim in court is three years from the date of death. However, it is always best to get specialist advice as soon as possible.

We offer a free initial consultation and we will sympathetically guide you through every step of your claim, allowing you to focus on getting your life back on track. We offer a no win, no fee arrangement on our clients cases and can advise you fully about this during the initial consultation.
