Fatal Injury Claims

At Hill & Abbott our specialist can offer you a No win No Fee agreement, even if your claim for compensation is unsuccessful.

Our solicitors are able to make home or hospital visits where clients are unable to attend the office. We offer early morning, late evening and Saturday morning appointments.

Our team are dedicated to helping people who have sustained life changing injuries and are associated with The Brain Injury Group and Headway, allowing access to services you would not normally receive.

An accident resulting in a fatality can have an enormous impact on those left behind, especially if the deceased was the main income earner of the family.  The lose means adjusting your entire life and you can be assured that Hill & Abbott Solicitors will work to ensure you receive compensation you deserve when the fatality was the result of someone else’s negligence.

We know it is never easy to discuss the loss of a loved one and coming to terms with the changes that need to happen but we will guide you through the process of making a claim for compensation and advise you if you have a claim.  From the outset we will be able to tell you if you can make a claim for:

  • Bereavement damages, this is normally a fixed sum
  • Any dependency claim

It is important to understand that, before a claim for negligence can be made we may need to obtain the report from the Coroner, who may have been instructed to hold an inquest.

We can help with Inquests

When someone dies in an accident the Coroner will hold an inquest into that person’s death. This can be a very emotional process and we are able to attend on behalf of your family.  We will explain the process in full and help you understand the outcome of the inquest and what this means.

What you can claim for?

In fatal claims it is possible to claim funeral expense and compensation for the surviving spouse/partner known as bereavement damages and any children of the deceased.  It may also be possible to seek to claim compensation for the pain and suffering before the death occurred.

With the support of our specialist personal injury solicitor and our Private Client Team we will also be able to provide you with advice on Personal Injury Trust which might assist in protecting existing benefits you receive.  We will also be able to assist in ensuring you receive the right financial advice to protect any money you receive which you may want to invest wisely for when your children are older, or for your future.
