Fatal Accident Solicitors

The loss of a friend of relative in a fatal accident is a difficult and painful situation to deal with. This situation is both emotionally and financially difficult for family and friends. In such a situation, we need professional fatal accident Solicitors to claim for compensation from the person responsible for the accident.


Cooks Legal deal in various kinds of fatal accidents including work related accidents, road traffic accidents, accidents occurring in public places or fatal accidents caused due to poisoning, hazardous substances, medical negligence or animal attack.

When a person passes away due to a fatal accident caused by the negligence of the third party, the relatives of the deceased person can claim for compensation through the court. This kind of compensation claim covers physical pain as well as emotional distress that the deceased person had to sustain since the time of accident until the time of his or her death.

Under UK law, an individual can make a claim for the deceased person who may either be the person’s spouse, children, grandchildren, grandparents, parents or any other close relative.

In order to make a compensation claim against the person responsible for the death, the relatives of the deceased person need to speak to professional fatal accident solicitors to get an idea about how long the legal procedure may take and how much compensation amount they are entitled to receive in their particular case.

The procedure for making a compensation claim becomes more complicated if the deceased person was self-employed, professional or director of an owned management business.

Cooks Legal provide their services on a no win no fee basis which means that we will not ask for any fees or charges from our clients win or lose.

The compensation amount for fatal accidents could be quite large depending upon the circumstances. This amount can be of great financial help, which may be required after losing a family member, especially if the deceased person was the person on whom the whole family was financially dependant.


Pedestrian run over by car
Mrs K was knocked over by a car that mounted the pavement, fracturing her tibia. Following extensive medical investigations organised by Cooks, it transpired that the accident brought forward the need for a knee replacement operation in the next 5-10 years. Cooks settled Mrs K’s claim for £28,750.00 she said:
"I am very pleased with the service I have received and would recommend Cookss to my friends. My claim was handled in a very professional manner and I was kept informed of it’s progress. Everyone I met or spoke to was helpful and considerate and I felt confident in their abilities. This was important to me at the time of my accident and later."
