How to sue for Wrongful Death

If you need to know how to sue for wrongful death, you should approach experienced personal injury Solicitors. Losing a loved one is always a stressful situation and will often have negative financial consequences for the victim’s family members. If the deceased passed away due to the negligence of another person or party, then the relatives of the deceased person are legally entitled to pursue a compensation claim. This will provide financial support to the relatives of the deceased victim.

People who have the right to bring the compensation claim of the deceased person include:

·                                 Surviving spouse of the deceased person

·                                 Live-in partner for at least 2 years

·                                 Children or grandchildren

·                                 Parents or grandparents

·                                 Any other dependants upon the deceased person

It is necessary to pursue the claim within three years of the person’s death, claims brought outside this time period will be ineligible.

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."
