Fatal accident claims
Losing a loved one to a fatal accident is one of the hardest things anyone could ever have to deal with. While no amount of money could ever truly make up for such a tragedy, claiming compensation can make it easier to deal with the practical issues that arise from the death of a loved one, including replacing lost income and covering other unavoidable costs.
Tayntons’ personal injury lawyers have been supporting individuals and families with fatal accident claims for many years. We understand how difficult and confusing these situations are and can offer the sensitive, compassionate, practical support you need to pursue compensation for the accidental death of a loved one.
Although we are based in Gloucester, we work with people all over the UK to claim compensation for everything from funeral costs to bereavement awards and loss of income and services where you were dependent on the deceased. Our goal is to make the claims process as straightforward as possible, giving you one less thing to worry about at this challenging time.
We offer a free, no-obligation initial consultation where we can talk through your case with you, giving you a clear idea of the strength of your claim and how much compensation you may be able to secure. We will also explain exactly how the claims process works in plain English, giving you all the information you need so you can make an informed decision about how to proceed.
Our no win, no fee fatal accident claims services
We represent many of our clients on a no-win, no-fee basis, meaning you do not need to pay any legal costs upfront. Instead, you will only pay us if we win compensation for you, with our legal fees being based on a pre-agreed percentage of any settlement we secure. This means there is no financial barrier to making a claim and you should never end up out of pocket.
Fatal accident compensation comes in various forms and exactly what you can claim will depend on the circumstances. As well as funeral costs, you may be able to claim for personal injuries and losses that occurred prior to death where an accident was not immediately fatal.
You may be able to claim a bereavement award if the deceased was your spouse, civil partner or child under the age of 18. The statutory sum recoverable for a bereavement award is fixed at £12,980.
Loss of dependency claims
If you were financially dependent on the deceased, you may be able to claim for the loss of that dependency. This includes claiming for loss of income as well as the loss of services.
