Fatal Accident Compensation Claim

Losing a loved one is always difficult. It can be made worse if the loss is sudden, unexpected and caused by someone else’s negligence.

In these cases, there will be many unanswered questions. What exactly happened? Why did it happen? Who was at fault?

These questions can make it harder to grieve and fully process your loss. Our fatal accident solicitors are on hand to help you through this difficult time, answer the questions you will have, and ensure that those at fault are held to account.

Claim The Compensation You Deserve

While money can’t make up for the loss of a loved one, a fatal accident claim can do much more than ensure you are compensated.

The claim can ensure that lessons are learned, those negligent are held responsible and that you and your loved ones can get some closure.

Working With A Fatal Accident Lawyer

At Jones Whyte, we have a specialist team of fatal accident solicitors. They will approach your claim with empathy and sensitivity. We will answer any questions we can, and fully investigate the nature of the incident, to ensure any other questions are answered.

Your solicitor will try and find all family members who should be part of the claim. The law in Scotland defines who can make a claim and also that once the claim process is completed, it can’t be restarted by family members not included in the claim.

Making A Fatal Accident Claim

Claims for fatal accidents can be made by:

  • A cohabitant, spouse, or civil partner.
  • Parents, including step-parents.
  • Children, including step-children.
  • Siblings, including step-siblings.
  • Grandparents, including step-grandparents.
  • Grandchildren, including step-grandchildren.

The law behind fatal accident claims has been established over hundreds of years in Scotland. There is a well-established history of compensating the families of soldiers going to war or workers doing particularly dangerous jobs.

The modern legislation that defines fatal accidents and personal injury claims continues this precedent.

If the worst happens and you need to make a claim, our fatal accident solicitors will support you every step of the way, from the initial meeting, through the investigation and tribunal, to receiving compensation.

Fatal Accident Claims Process

We aim to make the fatal accident claims process as simple as possible. After all, the last thing you want is additional stress when you are dealing with the loss of a loved one.

The process begins by taking your statement, to establish what happened and how. We will then contact the other side and begin the claim. We will gather all evidence, including incident reports and witness statements.

Financial losses are calculated, and dialogue with the other side can lead to the acceptance of liability and the agreement on damages.

Most cases are settled out of court, but if necessary, our fatal accident solicitors are experienced in all sorts of tribunals and court actions.
