Fatal Injury Claim

Regrettably,  individuals pass away in accidents of various types and leave behind a devastated family. If a fatal accident has taken place because of some other person or entity then the family or loved ones of the deceased may be able to make a fatal injury compensation claim so as to recuperate the losses suffered.

Making a fatal injury claim is essential for the members of the family of the deceased person to remain financially secure after the bereavement. In order to make sure that the family are properly compensated it is important to instruct Solicitors who hold great experience in resolving the high value and complicated claims. Cooks Legal will deal with such a claim with empathy and compassion towards the family of the deceased person.

As to progressing the fatal injury compensation claim, it is necessary to show that the fatal injury was caused because of the negligence of another party. On appointing Cooks Legal we will help you in amassing all the evidence and preparing a claim against the third party.

The majority of the fatal injury claim cases are successfully settled outside of court.

The fatal injury compensation claim may include the amount for the pain and suffering of the victim, prepayment of the actual losses like funeral expenses in addition to a bereavement award for deceased parents or spouse.

Individuals involved in a long-term relationship like common law wives and husbands, who have resided together continuously for at least two years before the date of death are treated the same as married partners for getting the amount of the compensation claim. Similarly, partners involved in a civil partnership or those having monetary dependency on the deceased person might be capable of claiming compensation as well.

If a relative or you yourself have a fatal injury compensation claim on the deceased's behalf, Cooks Legal will pursue the fatal injury compensation claim on “no win no fee” basis.

Pedestrian Fall from Bicycle
Miss H was knocked off her bicycle when her front tyre struck a loose paving stone jutting into the road. She sustained a head injury causing severe short term memory loss and mood swings. After 2 years her original Solicitors withdrew from the case as they believed her claim had less than a 50% chance of succeeding. Miss H contacted Cooks who agreed to represent her on a No win No fee basis.

Within 18 months the matter was resolved and Miss H received a settlement cheque of £300,000.00. She told us
"Thank you Cooks for believing in me and my claim. My Solicitor was always available to me and happy to explain each step of the process. The only surprise was how much you managed to obtain for me without the need to go to trial. I will tell all my friends about your great service."
