What is a fatal
accident claim?

A fatal accident claim is where someone has sadly died due to an accident. This page deals with deaths related to medical negligence; for deaths due to personal injury, such as a road traffic accident or accident at work, or due to industrial disease, please click on the following links.

Any death is tragic and saddening for the loved ones of the Deceased, irrespective of whether it is due to negligence. However, in cases where the death was avoidable, this is even more devastating for those left behind, who are dealing not only with their grief but also with the practical challenges and difficulties of their loss in the knowledge that it need not have happened.

We always strive to support bereaved families through the process of bringing a claim in a compassionate and empathetic manner. We can assist, not only with bringing a claim, but also with inquests, in which useful information to assist with a claim can be obtained.

If an inquest has been arranged in respect of a death of a loved one and you wish to consider bringing a claim, you do not need to wait until the inquest has concluded before approaching us. We can also assist with obtaining a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration from the Probate Registry, if this is required for the claim

    When can a fatal
    accident claim occur?

    We appreciate that no amount of money however can ever truly compensate for the loss of a loved one but the process of bringing a claim can be helpful to families in obtaining answers as to why it happened and securing apologies for failing to provide appropriate care, as well as assisting financially.

    Claims can be pursued in respect of primary care professionals, such as GPs, nurses and pharmacists, as well as in respect of care in a hospital setting, whether a private or NHS hospital.

    Types of fatal
    accident claims

    Types of fatal accident claims can include when there is death due to:

    1. Delayed diagnosis of cancer;
    2. Catastrophic brain injury
    3. During childbirth
    4. Stillbirth/neonatal death
    5. Sepsis
    6. Meningitis or other infection
    7. Vascular injury
    8. Cardiac injury
    9. Surgical error

     

    Making a fatal
    accident claim

    We can discuss your case with a free initial consultation to understand your concerns, which may include taking forward your claim on a ‘NO WIN NO FEE’ basis.

    We work on a conditional fee basis, ensuring you don’t have to worry about legal costs if your claim is unsuccessful.

    Claims can be pursued against both NHS and private hospitals.

    Our specialist team can support you with bringing a claim and in cases where treatment and care are required, we will endeavour to secure early compensation payments, known as interim payments, to assist with funding this, above and beyond that which is available on the NHS.

    If a loved one has died as a result of negligent medical care, the next of kin can bring a claim both on both behalf of the estate of the Deceased and on behalf of those who were dependant on the Deceased, both financially and in respect of the things that they would do. In addition, claims can be pursued under the Human Rights Act, in order to pursue the maximum amount of compensation.
