Fatal accident claims

Coming to terms with the death of a loved one is always going to be difficult. But if the cause of death was someone else’s fault, it can be even more devastating and hard to come to terms with.

The last thing you need when trying to come to terms with the death of a loved one is financial pressure and anxiety about how you will cope. A fatal accident claim can help to take away the financial burden.

At CFG Law we will guide you through this process and act in a professional, sensitive and sympathetic manner at all times. We will also put you in touch with relevant support networks that can help you start to come to terms with your loss.

We understand that claiming compensation for a fatal accident cannot bring your loved one back, but we can help you to hold someone accountable for your loss, and ease the financial struggle you might be facing.

How can CFG Law help with your fatal accident claim?

Due to the sensitive nature of fatal accident claim, our solicitors can visit you and your family at home to fully discuss your circumstances in an environment you feel comfortable.

We understand that for many people, making a claim is about getting justice for a loved one and proving that someone was to blame for what happened.

We will fully explore the accident circumstances surrounding the death of your loved one. As with all personal injury claims, we will need to prove that the accident was a result of someone else’s failings. We have the complex legal knowledge to guide you through this process and support you and your family at this difficult time.

What is included in a fatal accident claim?

Although no amount of money can bring your loved one back, making a fatal accident claim can help lighten your financial burden. Claims for fatal injury will include a Statutory Bereavement Award. This compensation is awarded to the family in recognition of the grief a person has gone through after the death of a loved one, as well as a financial token in recognition that the person's death was wrongful.

There are also other costs and expenses that can be claimed for, including:

  • The pain and suffering of the deceased.
  • Repayment of losses, for example, funeral expenses.
  • Loss of income and financial support from the deceased.
  • The cost of probate.
  • Compensation for services the deceased would have performed (e.g. housework, childcare, etc.).

Inquests after a fatal accident

Sometimes an inquest will need to be held if the cause of death was sudden, violent or unknown. An inquest will consider the circumstances of the death and how it happened and is managed by a Coroner.

We are here to provide you with the help and support you need during an inquest. We will be able to talk you through the process and how it works, and can also attend the inquest alongside you to offer you the legal and emotional support you need.

The Coroner who deals with your inquest will have dealt with many inquests before; they will understand your needs at this difficult time and will be considerate of your feelings.


What do I do next?

Our specialist fatal accident solicitors are here to help you. Our compassionate team will advise you on the best options for you. All of our fatal accident compensation claims are taken on a No Win, No Fee basis, so there is no further financial stress to you in these difficult circumstances.

We are sincerely sorry for your loss and will help you to claim compensation which will allow you to move on with justice served, and support in place.
