Lawyer in Tewkesbury


Unfortunately, people can be involved in a fatal accident at any point in their lives. It can happen while you are at work, in a road traffic accident, or you could be knocked off your bicycle. Innocent victims are killed all the time, through no fault of their own. In this situation, the bereaved family are entitled to claim for compensation, and they may want to use an injury lawyer in Tewkesbury from Accident Advice Helpline to help them.

If you have lost a loved one in an accident that was no fault of their own, this can be heartbreaking and extremely upsetting. Not only can this be an awful experience for you to suffer but what if the person that died was the main breadwinner in the house? It can cause all sorts of financial problems for those left behind.

We know that however much money you are awarded cannot replace the person that has been lost, but it can give some financial stability, and make life a little easier to cope with. Contact our injury lawyers in Tewkesbury, if you are in this situation and they will help you to get the correct amount of compensation that you deserve for the loss of your loved one.

Using an injury lawyer for a fatal injury claim

Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our solicitors will help you claim the compensation you are entitled to if you have lost a loved one in an accident that wasn’t their fault. They will go through the accident with you and make sure that everything is accounted for when they are putting together the fatal injury compensation claim.

We know that life will never be the same for the family of the deceased, but we are here to help them get their legal rights to compensation, and we aim to do this in a simple and efficient manner, with as little stress as possible being caused.

Who can make a claim

If you are a dependent of the person who has died then you should be entitled to make a fatal injury claim, and the law specifies who these dependents could be:

  • A husband or wife and ex-husband or wife
  • A civil partner and ex-civil partner
  • Someone who was living with the deceased as husband or wife for at least two years before the death
  • A parent or someone the deceased treated as a parent
  • A child or a child they treated as their own
  • Brothers and sisters
  • Aunts, uncles and cousins

As part of the claim, there is a statutory bereavement payment, but this can only be paid once. If more than one person proves their dependency, the amount is split evenly between them.

Making a fatal injury claim

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

You will find our advisors friendly and sympathetic to your case, and you can contact them on our freephone number 0800 689 0500, where they will be pleased to assist you, or you can complete one of our online options if you prefer.
