Making a claim following the death of a loved one, due to negligence, can be difficult for those members of the family who are still in a state of shock. Our priority is to support those left behind during what is an emotionally turbulent time, and do everything we can to seek the compensation they are owed.
Compensation will never relieve the sense of loss, but it can help alleviate the financial stress you are experiencing, which will be especially important if the main breadwinner of the family has been lost or other monetary problems have occurred.
Once you instruct a Solicitor to help, they will represent the estate of the deceased.
Fatal injury compensation claims can be legally complex in nature hence why you need the services of an expert in this field to work for you.
The events that led up to the occurrence can vary, but here are just a few examples of claims we have handled:
It may be necessary for a post-mortem to be conducted so that the cause of death is conclusive. This may also be carried out if death or fatal injury occurs due to violence, accident, surgical operation, or medical treatment. If the post-mortem proves to be inconclusive, an inquest may be ordered.
Your Solicitor will require full details of the circumstances, and family members will need to give a precise history of events leading up to the event, along with dates and any symptoms or problems that occurred. Once your Solicitor has all of the necessary evidence, they will prepare the case for court (if required). Very often, these cases are settled before this stage, so do not worry that you will have to attend court.
By engaging the services of a professional fatal injury negligence Lawyer, you can be assured of receiving help and support, as well as adequate recompense for your loss.
