A Sensitive Solicitors Service for Fatal Accident Claims

Our Fatal Accident claims service provides the following and more:

  • Lawyers with the experience of undertaking detailed investigations of the facts relevant to your claim.

Compensation Claims for Fatal Accidents

Some accidents result in the death of the victim. Or, deaths occur as a consequence of industrial diseases or medical negligence.

Either way, fatal accidents shatter families and cause financial hardship. In these cases, the claim survives for the benefit of the victim’s Estate.

In appropriate cases, we can recover compensation for the victim’s surviving spouse or partner and dependants.

If you are affected by a fatal accident within your family make sure you understand the options available to you. This will help you claim the appropriate compensation for yourself and family members.

Family members are often forced to respond to enquiries from a coroner after a death in the family occurs. They may also have to attend a coroner’s inquest.

It is important to contact our legal team early enough to assist you with the inquest process. It is also helpful if we can attend the inquest to listen to the evidence and to represent your interests.

In fatal accident claims, it is necessary to gain a Grant of Representation, either Probate or Letters of Administration. This document is available from the court before the claim concludes.

    Dependency Claims Following A Fatal Accident

    fatal injury example

    There are circumstances whereby a person who was financially dependent upon someone who dies, or who could have reasonably expected to rely on them for financial or service reasons had they still been alive, may be entitled to claim for compensation. When claiming for Loss of Dependency following a death, very strict requirements exist under the law, and Tinsdills are able to help you with these claims.

    It can be a complicated area of law. Dependants might include a surviving spouse or civil partner, children and grandchildren of the deceased. Tinsdills can help you with claims for Loss of Dependency following death.

    No amount of money can ever compensate for the loss of a life. Yet, it can help to ease the financial strain on families. We have specialist solicitors who deal with fatal accident claims with sensitivity and compassion.
