Our lawyers are all members of the Solicitors Regulation Authority panel of personal injury experts¹ who deal with fatal accident compensation claims using a no win no fee arrangement. No legal charge is payable unless the legal case is won and the client obtains an award of compensation. In the event that the legal claim is lost our fatal accident solicitors make no charge to the client.

Fatal Accident Compensation Award

If a financial claim by a fatal accident solicitor is successful, the cost of funeral arrangements and a statutory sum for bereavement will be awarded. Further sums covering loss of dependency from the deceased earnings and pension can also be claimed by the surviving spouse. The estimated joint income of the husband and wife usually includes a dependency fraction for the surviving spouse relating to shared expenditure and that part of joint income is calculated with the appropriate amount being awarded as a dependency figure in a fatal accident compensation claim.


When a family member dies a result of an error by a negligent third party it can have far reaching financial effects. As part of the Administration of Justice Act 1982, a fatal accident compensation claim can be brought by dependants of an individual who dies as a result of any wrongful act, neglect or default by another party. The legislation covers dependants who are defined as dependent children, a spouse or common law spouse and other dependants who had a relationship with the deceased. The last group must show that they had suffered a financial loss or would in the future, as a result of the death.

Car Accidents & Workplace Injury

A fall from height is the most common cause of a fatal accident compensation claim while the next most frequent is involvement in a road traffic accident. Statistics show that the majority of fatalities occur in the workplace; especially within the construction and agriculture industries.
