Fatal accident claims can be complex and demanding because of the legal issues surrounding them.
We know the death of a loved one can leave families struggling to cope both financially and physically at home, and although no amount of money can make up for the physical loss, a fatal injury compensation claim can help people make vital adjustments to life, both in the short and long-term.
Having worked on complex cases like this for many years, we have experience of obtaining substantial compensation following a fatal accident on behalf of bereaved families, whether the incident occurred on the road, at work or in other circumstances.
Our dedicated personal injury team, which includes many fatal accident solicitors and specialists, have successfully pursued compensation claims on behalf of:
If your quality of life or financial position has been altered because of a fatal accident to a loved one, contact us now through our claim online form and one of our specialists will call you back to give initial advice about your case. This consultation is free of charge and all claims are dealt with on a no win no fee basis so there is no financial risk to you.
If you were financially dependent on the deceased you may be able to claim for the loss of financial support, other support such as childcare or household duties, and for loss of any other benefits such as pension rights.
Although fatal accident dependency awards are sometimes a necessity for the family that gets left behind, there are many more reasons to pursue a claim – not just compensation for the death and hurt which has been caused.
For some, discovering the truth about what happened and getting an apology is just as important.
Should you pursue a claim with Hudgell Solicitors, your case will be handled sensitively and with sympathy by an experienced solicitor with extensive experience of handling claims of this nature.
In appropriate circumstances we will assist you with inquest representation and/or advice and assistance with criminal or health and safety proceedings brought about as a result of the accident.
According to The Fatal Accidents Act 1976 law, fatal accident compensation can be awarded on behalf of any “dependents” of the person who died.
Whilst dealing with the emotional loss is always the first priority following a fatal injury or accident, thoughts may eventually turn to much more practical matters – such as how to maintain some level of financial stability after the loss of a spouse or partner, who was the main income earner.
As experienced fatal accident claims solicitors, we help families claim the maximum amount of compensation they are entitled to.
Although each case is different because of the individual circumstances, if the loss of a main family earner has occurred you may be able to claim for all or some of the following:
At Hudgell Solicitors, we don’t just seek to recover the fatal accident compensation you deserve, we are there to help you every step of the way. Our team of fatal accident lawyers will always pursue every avenue in the hunt for the truth.
Our caring approach to legal advice allows us to support clients with fatal accident claims, which can be complex, time consuming and distressing, by offering a service that is personal and puts you and your family’s needs first.
That’s why we would strongly encourage you to call even if you may think the circumstances surrounding the accident is trivial.
So, if you need advice regarding the loss of a loved one due to a fatal accident or fatal injury, contact our down to earth and friendly team today for free advice and support about your case.
If the deceased was your husband or wife, or your child under the age of 18 on the date of their death, this is a fixed sum of £12,980 which is awarded.
Paid in addition to any fatal accident dependency calculations and claims that you may, our team of specialists will help to secure these funds on your behalf, and at no cost to you, to help take the stress out of the process.
