Fatal Accident Claims

Have you lost a loved one as a result of a fatal accident? Claim with us

If a member of your family has died as a result of an accident or personal injury, you could be eligible to claim for compensation. Fatal accident claims can be the result of many different types of personal injury, with the most common being road traffic accidents and medical negligence.

As a very traumatic and sensitive case, we understand that it may take a bit of time before you feel ready to talk to a solicitor about your loved one’s fatality. When you do call us, you’ll be treated with respect and empathy on a professional level. We’re here to help you claim compensation for your sad loss, and we’ll fight to get the money you deserve.

Make no mistake, it can often be a complicated process to pursue a fatality accident claim, and this is due to the overall complexity of the situation. Medical evidence will be key, as will our expert guidance on the matter, so that we can assess the full extent of the fatality and the necessary next steps.

Fatal Accident Claims Due To Medical Negligence

If the fatal accident was caused by medical negligence, it could be due to misdiagnosis, surgical negligence or hospital infections. It is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible following a fatal accident caused by medical negligence, as there is a 3 year period following the date of death in which you are eligible to make a fatal accident claim.

Fatal Accident Claims Due To Road Traffic Accidents

It could be that your loved one suffered their fatality as the result of a road traffic accident and you’re seeking compensation from the other side. Even if the fatality victim was partly liable for the accident, there is still an opportunity to file a fatality accident claim, albeit the financial compensation may be reduced slightly.
