Losing a loved one in tragic circumstances leaves an emotional scar and feelings of emptiness, as anyone who has gone through that experience will know. It becomes all the more heart-breaking when that son, daughter, husband or wife dies in an accident which was not of their making.
Lost family breadwinner
One minute they’re there, the next, gone and it’s a sad fact that those who are left behind have to pick up the pieces and carry on with their lives. The deceased could well have been a family breadwinner and so concerns by loved ones eventually have to turn towards securing financial stability for the future. It’s here that Accident Advice Helpline can step into the breach.
We have expert solicitors in our law firm all working on a no-win, no-fee basis. The claimant may be fearful of having to lay out funds on expensive litigation, especially at such a difficult time. Rest assured that one of our personal injury solicitors assigned to the fatalities claim will do so at no cost to you at the outset. You’ve lost enough, so it’s time to redress matters to ensure peace of mind where money matters in the years ahead are concerned.
In a nutshell, that not only means a substantial award for the loss of the person, but also compensation paid to dependants in covering their financial incumbencies since the accident and in the future.
The process to start a fatalities claim can begin with a free call to Accident Advice Helpline.. One of our expert staff will be sensitive to your situation and ask a few basic but important questions in just 30-seconds or thereabouts. He or she will need to know if the accident happened within the last three years, that the victim was in no way to blame for what happened and that a physician attended the deceased after the accident.
There are exceptions to the three year rule and in a fatalities claim concerning someone who died as as a consequence of a work-related illness, the claim can start from when this was first diagnosed. Another exception to the three year rule applies to those who will have been under 18 at the time of the injury accident. He or she has until the age of 21 to make a personal injury claim.
Tragic accident at work
A fatalities claim handled by an Accident Advice helpline lawyer can have come from the tragic consequences of an accident at work – factory, office, shop, manufacturing or construction environment, even in a road accident where the deceased had been going about employer business. It may have been the result of a general car accident as driver or passenger, motorcycle or bicycle rider, or even as a pedestrian.
