Fatal Accidents

Accidents that may occur due to medical negligence, accidents occurring on the roads, at public places and at the work place can result in fatal accidents. Such fatal accidents cause the family and close friends of victims to suffer significant stress. 

Factories are one such location where a considerable amount of accidents occur due to improper safety facilities or lack of adequate knowledge to the workers about the safety measures and infrastructure. Fatal accidents may occur due to fire, heavy machinery, and scaffolding. They can result in disastrous injuries such as head injuries, physical injuries, psychiatric injuries, toxic exposure as well as other injuries and worst of all a fatal accident. Such fatal accidents result in a difficult time for family members. When the victim passes away it may affect emotionally as well as financially the lives of person(s) that are dependent upon him/her. Dependents can be parents, spouse, children, grandchildren, grandparents and any partner who has lived at least 2 years with the deceased person.

Accident in Supermarket
Mrs H was shopping for a small fold out table in a Supermarket. She reached to take one when the stack collapsed falling onto her right foot. X-rays to her foot showed no fracture but she was still forced to use crutches for a few weeks afterwards.

Within 6 months of being instructed Cooks had obtained a settlement offer of £2,000.00 which Mrs H was delighted to accept. She said
"My Granddaughter found your website and recommended you to me. Thank you for all your efforts for my accident claim, I appreciate your kindness. I received my cheque today and will be taking my grandchildren away on holiday with the money you recovered for me"
