The unexpected loss of a loved one as result of a fatal accident is not only tragic but is very distressful and devastating. As well as coping with the sudden death of a loved one their passing quite often results in a significant financial strain on the surviving family members. Whilst no amount of money can compensate the loss of a loved one, if their death was due to the negligence of another person you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation. It is important to ensure that you are properly and adequately compensated. The initial costs immediately after a fatality can be quite substantial. We can assist you from the outset to sympathetically and confidentially deal with any legal issues and associated expenses arising from a fatal accident.
We can assist you in recovering associated funeral expenses, the cost of any medical expenses incurred prior to death, the Statutory Bereavement Award and any potential dependency claims.
