The process of claiming compensation at this most difficult time can be complex, time-consuming and understandably distressing. Our fatal accident solicitors will use all of their skills, knowledge and professionalism to ensure your claim is dealt with as quickly, simply and problem-free as possible.

Our team of fatal accident lawyers are experienced in pursuing compensation claims following fatal road collisions on behalf of:

  • A husband or wife, or former husband or wife of the deceased
  • A civil partner or former civil partner of the deceased
  • A person who was living with the deceased as husband or wife for at least two years prior to the death
  • A parent or other dependant of the deceased
  • A person who was treated by the deceased as his or her parent
  • A child or other dependant of the deceased

Our fatal accident claims specialists offer a free, no obligation initial consultation where we will discuss the circumstances of your case with you. We will tell you if we believe you could pursue a claim and clearly explain your options to you, enabling you to make an informed choice that best suits you and your needs.

Most clients choose our No Win No Fee scheme because it provides a risk-free way to pursue compensation.

Some clients might already have cover to pay for the case, although they may not be aware of it. Many household and car insurance policies actually provide cover to pay for a case such as this, while members of trade unions might also have a similar funding policy.

Our team of experts will closely examine your existing policies and advise you on the best way to fund the claim, helping you make the right choice and ensuring you have complete peace of mind.
