Fatal accidents explained

Losing a loved one in a fatal accident is one of the worst things that can happen and we want you to take time to grieve. However, if this loss has left you in a difficult financial position, seeking rightful compensation may be a necessity and if the accident was someone else’s fault, you may want to consider claiming for compensation.

We have the understanding and the experience to handle any claim with the utmost sensitivity. If someone else’s actions or negligence were even partly to blame for your loss, please get in touch with us once you feel comfortable to do so.

Common causes for a fatal accident

We often can support clients with the following cases:

  • Children, grandchildren and other descendants
  • Adopted children or those from a marriage or civil partnership
  • Parents, grandparents and others with parental responsibility
  • Close relatives including siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews
