Fatal Accident Lawyer


Do you need a fatal accident lawyer?

Fatal accidents can happen anywhere and anytime — in the workplace, in a car collision or perhaps by being knocked off a bicycle. Sometimes it is not a one-off accident that causes the death, but it can be an illness or disease that was contracted in the workplace. They can also be caused by medical negligence or criminal assault.

The resulting devastation not only leaves families totally bereft, but can also leave them in severe financial trouble. Just think of the example of a man killed at work who was the breadwinner of his household – how will his wife and children cope? Yes, there are state benefits, but they are not like having a wage coming in, and along with all the other problems the wife would have the trouble of actually claiming the benefits. The circumstances and needs of every family are different, which makes every case unique.

Lost a loved one in an accident?

If you have lost a loved one in a fatal accident, you will need the help of a fatal accident lawyer. There are so many things to be taken into account for the family, that the help of a fatal accident lawyer in your claim for compensation is essential to ensure that no areas are missed.

You do not have to have been married to the deceased for a fatal accident lawyer to make your claim. Below are some of the relationships that would be eligible:

  • A husband or wife;
  • An ex-husband or ex-wife;
  • A civil partner;
  • An ex-civil partner;
  • Someone who was living with the deceased as husband or wife for at least two years before the death;
  • A parent;
  • Someone the deceased treated as a parent;
  • A child; or
  • Anyone else who was a dependent of the deceased.

The trauma facing families who have lost a loved one is unimaginable unless you have experienced it yourself. There will be many pressing matters, finances being just one of them, but where appropriate an interim payment can be claimed to try and ease this burden at least.

Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our solicitors have assisted many families over the years to get the compensation due to them, and have built up a wealth of resources and knowledge to get you the best compensation payout available.

Making a compensation claim at a very difficult time can be complicated, time consuming and of course distressing, but you will find that our skilled solicitors will ensure your claim is dealt with as quickly and trouble-free as possible.
