SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS

together

If someone you love has been fatally injured in an accident that was not their fault, contact the expert fatal injury solicitors at Forbes today for free initial legal advice. We operate on a no win, no fee basis, which means there is no financial risk and nothing to pay in the unlikely event your claim is unsuccessful.

When we lose a loved one, it can be an extremely sad and upsetting time, but if we lose a loved one due to someone else's negligence or due to an accident that could have been avoided, this can turn into a devastating and distressing experience.

If a loved one is the sole breadwinner of the family and they are involved in a fatal injury , this can leave families in financial strife as their only means of income has been taken away from them.

We understand that after a fatal injury, a compensation claim may be the last thing a family is worrying about, but compensation can help ease the pain and suffering after a devastating loss and help secure a family's financial future. In addition, it can also help cover funeral costs and the costs of any on-going support you may need, such as counselling and professional emotional support.

Our expert team of serious injury and fatal injury solicitors have helped many families claim successful fatal accident and injury compensation claims, that ensure their future is protected and represent the severity of the injuries.

We pride ourselves on not only offering the very best in legal advice but support and sympathy in your time of crisis. Your best interests are always at the heart of everything we do, and as such we will always handle your case with care and the utmost compassion.

Can I claim?

The law states that a "dependant" can claim compensation for losses caused by a fatal injury. The following people can claim compensation:

  • A husband or wife, including an ex husband and wife of the deceased
  • A person who was living with the deceased for at least two years prior to the fatal injury
  • Any children or parents of the deceased
  • Any civil partners or former civil partners
  • A relation to the deceased such as brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews and cousins

Our team of specialist fatal injury compensation claims solicitors can offer advice on the following issues:

  • Fatal injuries sustained due to falls from height
  • Vicious attacks
  • Fatal road traffic accidents
  • Deaths from clinical negligence
  • Fatal injuries at work
  • Fatal injuries in a public place
  • Fatal injuries sustained from industrial diseases

This is just a short list of the types of fatal injury claims we handle. Even if you are unsure as to whether you have a claim, contact us today for free initial advice.

Can you help me with inquests?

Yes we can.

If a loved one suffers a fatal injury in unclear circumstances or unexpected circumstances an inquest may be held. In this case we can provide you with the legal help you need to get the answers you want.

We can liaise with the coroner's office as well as police, and if necessary, any witnesses to help with the inquest. This may feel like a daunting task, but our expert solicitors will guide you every step of the way, and if necessary represent you.

If you have suffered the loss of a loved one due to a fatal injury, contact our expert serious and fatal injury solicitors today. We have a dedicated team of legal experts ready to help you claim compensation.
