Fatal Accident Family Help

If you have suffered the loss of a family member due to a fatal accident, you will be aware of the emotional and financial pain attached to it. But  you might need fatal accident family help. In the case that the family member has passed away due to the negligence or fault of some other party, the dependents may be entitled to a fatal accident compensation claim.

The legal advice and services are offered without charging any cost. We are experienced and qualified Solicitors who review the wrongful death case of their clients and then explain the whole claims process, accessing the chances of winning. There is actually no fee for such advice even if the clients do not go any further to employ our services. Cooks Legal deal with fatal accident cases on a No Win No Fee Policy. The clients do not need to pay Cooks Legal in cases where the claims are unsuccessful and there is no cost even if we win as we get paid by the third party.

Many fatal injuries are suffered as a result of falling from heights at work, items falling on the victims and vehicle collisions. People involved in the construction, agricultural and manufacturing industries are often exposed to the falling and collision dangers. It is the statutory mandatory responsibility of the employers to make sure that the workplace environment is safe. They have the duty to maintain a safe system of work, safe premises and provision of adequate plant and equipment. The employer should also minimise dangers and provide safety training to employees.

The compensation claim of the deceased includes amounts for injuries compensation, physical pain and emotional distress. In cases where the death of the victim was instant and the sufferer did not regain consciousness, no compensation is paid. Compensation can also be awarded regarding the reasonably incurred economic losses, calculated from date of injury to death along with the funeral expenses. Further, the victim’s dependents may claim compensation for fatal accident family help.

The dependants who may get compensation include:

  • Wife or husband and former wife or husband
  • Former or current civil partner
  • Person living with victim as wife or husband for two years
  • Parents
  • Children

These compensations will be included if the dependant has suffered a financial loss and could be significant if the deceased was the only source of income in the family. Other compensation amounts may consist of childcare, domestic support and home repair.

Workplace Accident
Mrs P tripped on an extension lead wire which had been left to run across the floor of her workplace. She had previously complained about the lead however it was not rectified until after her accident. Liability was admitted early in the claim and Mrs P was awarded £1600.00 following consultation with a medico-legal expert.
"I was very sceptical to approach a "no win no fee" firm, but I was happy to have them help me. They were professional, concise and were successful with my claim. I would be very happy to use them and to recommend them."
