Fatal accident claims expertise

We specialise in fatal accident claims with particular focus on high-value dependency claims arising under the provisions of the Fatal Accidents Act 1976.

When a fatal accident occurs through the negligence of a third party, the financial dependents of the deceased may be able to make a claim for the loss of financial support.


Leading fatal accidents lawyers

Our lawyers combine an expert knowledge of the law relating to fatal accidents with an understanding of the evidential issues that can be encountered. In particular, we have in-depth experience in preparing cases following the death of a high earning individual with complex financial affairs.

We have been successful in many high-profile claims and have secured substantial compensation for our clients.


Securing the best future for the financial dependents of the deceased

Our role is to secure the best possible future for the financial dependents of the deceased. We have recovered more than £1.3bn in damages in the last decade and acted for over 2,500 bereaved or seriously injured clients.

Unlike other law firms, we only act for clients who have lost someone to a fatal accident or sustained serious life-changing injuries. We are able to select the most appropriate experts to help accurately assess and evaluate your claim.
