Compensation for the Dead

Injuries can take place at any time and at any location. There are various circumstances where a person might get injured including workplace injury, public transport injury, pedestrian injury, slips, trips or falls and many others. These accidents can be serious sometimes leading to death.

Accidents that lead to death and are caused because of the negligence of the other party can give rise to compensation claims. Though the emotional and physical loss cannot be compensated, the family members can opt for compensation for the dead. This will compensate for the financial losses especially if the person who has died was the earning member of the family.

Cooks Legal are well qualified, knowledgeable and experienced personal injury and fatal accident Solicitors who can fight on behalf of the family of the deceased in getting them compensation for the financial losses that they had to bear following the death of the victim.

It is advantageous to have strong evidence in the form of incident photographs, medical bills and medical reports of the victim as this can prove to be beneficial for getting compensation for the dead. We are familiar with the various laws and can help the family members in claiming compensation that they are rightfully entitled to.

Cooks Legal are expert Solicitors who work on a no win no fee basis which means that there is no need for you to pay any amount of money if the case is lost. In instances where the case is won, we do not take any sum of money from the client. Instead we will recover our charges from the other party, ensuring you get 100% compensation.

Cooks obtained photographs and sketch plans of the accident site and agreed with Mr G to issue his claim. As soon as the documents were lodged with the Court, the defendant insurers accepted liability and settled the claim in the sum of £5,420.58. He said:
