No matter how they occur, fatal accidents are devastating for loved ones and families, causing unimaginable emotional trauma and, in many instances, serious financial consequences. Bringing a fatal accident claim cannot turn back the clock or undo the pain and suffering, but it can help bring financial security for the future.
Whether you are facing your loss as a spouse or former spouse, civil partner, cohabitee, child, parent, close family member or a dependent, we can help.
Our approachable and sensitive team is on your side every step of the way and will help you pursue your full entitlement to fatal accident compensation or bereavement damages in a sympathetic, caring and non-pressurised environment.
Our experienced team is widely recognised as one of the UK’s best. We can help you deal with all the practical aspects of a fatal accident claim and ease the inevitable stress at an immensely difficult time.
We pride ourselves on forging strong personal relationships with our clients, so you can be sure we will take time to get to know you in order that your fatal loss claim accurately reflects your individual situation.
We will ensure your claim addresses the practical issues such as financial loss, making the maximum possible claim on your behalf for loss of dependency and loss of support as set out under the Fatal Accidents Act 1976.
