There is nothing more traumatic than losing a loved one. As well as dealing with the loss of a loved one, those left behind may need to know what, when and why it happened. If they were dependent upon the victim, they may also be faced with significant financial problems in the future.
In 2019 accidents at work resulted in 147 fatal injuries and 1,870 fatalities were caused by road traffic accidents.
Fatal accident claims require specialist knowledge and experience. If the facts of the accident are uncertain the family may require help and representation at an inquest held by a coroner.
The claim for compensation itself is often complex and detailed. Specialist claims can be made subject to the circumstances of the family including funeral expenses, the statutory bereavement award, claims for past and future loss of income and other dependency claims.
If your loved one was involved in an accident causing Fatal Injuries that was not their fault, we can help you at the inquest and to make any claim for compensation. We have experience in dealing with fatal claims involving:
- Road traffic accidents;
- Accidents in the workplace;
- Medical negligence;
- Industrial disease;
- Construction site accidents;
- Sporting and recreational activity accidents.
