If you have lost a loved one as a result of a fatal injury in an accident caused by the negligence of another person or company, the knowledge that their death could have been avoided will add to your distress. If you relied on that person financially, you will also be worried about your own future.
If you are eligible to claim compensation you will need a specialist personal injury solicitor with experience of fatal accident claims who can also support you through the inquest.
In most cases, the person or company responsible will be covered by an insurance policy. The insurers may even contact you directly to discuss compensation. However, you should always consult a solicitor before accepting any offer of compensation. Remember that the insurance company’s objective is to keep their costs to a minimum.
Our personal injury law team has a strong track record in obtaining compensation for families after a fatal accident, whether in a road traffic accident or as a result of an accident in the workplace.
Mooney Everett Solicitors offer an initial consultation for bereaved family members. This gives you the opportunity to discuss the circumstances of the accident with a specialist injury lawyer, explore your options and assess whether you may be entitled to compensation. We will explain everything in plain English, including how your claim could be funded by a no win, no fee arrangement, meaning that you would have no legal costs if the claim were not successful.
