Fatal Accident Claims

We know that no amount of compensation from a fatal accident claim can make up for the death of a loved one. The death of a loved one can be a distressing time, especially when caused by a fatal accident which has taken their life early. However, making a fatal accident claim can bring a measure of justice for the death and in many cases a fatal accident claim can provide vital compensation to deal with often difficult financial consequences following the death.

Our experienced and supportive team handle all fatal accident claims sympathetically and sensitively.

In all fatal accident claims we aim to ensure full and fair compensation is secured, on a no win-no fee’ basis with full insurance backing, so that legal costs is one thing you will not need to worry about when making a fatal accident claim.

As well as securing full compensation for the fatal accident claim, our team at Brachers can offer representation at any Coroner’s Inquest concerning the death and we can provide the family with assistance needed with obtaining probate and administering the estate. Many fatal accident claims result from asbestos and other industrial diseases where we have a particular expertise.

Bringing a fatal accident claim for compensation does not involve punishing those responsible for the fatal accident. Usually compensation for a fatal accident claim is paid by an insurance company.

It will be for the police or the Health and Safety Executive to decide whether they will pursue a criminal prosecution to punish the wrongdoer.
