Fatal Accidents

Williamsons Personal Injury Team have assisted families and people who have lost loved ones in car crash accidents, accidents at work (including working at sea) and railway accidents.

In such traumatic circumstances we will deal with your case sympathetically and compassionately in order to ensure that you fully understand the legal process and what legal redress is available to you, in order to ensure that you are compensated for the financial consequences of losing a loved one.

All such cases are different, but examples of compensation claims available are:

  • Statutory bereavement
  • The pain and suffering of the deceased
  • Loss of income to the family dependents
  • Compensation to pay for the services that the deceased performed such as childcare, DIY etc
  • Funeral and probate expenses/costs

Statutory Bereavement Awards

This is an award which can be paid to you if the deceased was either your husband or wife, or your child who was under 18 at the date of their death.

The award is a fixed sum and is paid in addition to any dependency claim which you may have.

Dependency Claims

A dependent who may be entitled to claim compensation following a fatal accident can be:

  • A husband, wife or ex-spouse of the deceased
  • A person who has lived with the deceased as if they were husband or wife for at least 2 years prior to the death
  • A child or parent of the deceased
  • A civil partner or ex-civil partner of the deceased
  • In certain circumstances a close family relative (brother, sister, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew or cousin of the deceased).

If you have lost someone in an accident caused by somebody else’s negligence then to find out if you have a claim call us today on freephone 0800 298 6013 or complete the contact form below.

We instructed Williamsons to carry out the conveyancing on our house purchase. Gemma was excellent, keeping us up to date with the progress made towards completion by email and sending us the relevant paper work. She made us aware of any issues and suggested a course of action. We would highly recommend using Williamsons.

Mr and Mrs Green

We were delighted with the service we received. Although unable to speak to our designated officer Mrs Spooner, her assistant Natalie was always on hand to advise, particularly relevant on the final day when exchange and completion took place at the same time. A difficult period, not being helped by the long-distance, was made as easy as such a situation could ever be. Thank you.
