When a loved one dies suddenly and unexpectedly as the result of a fatal accident, your life is turned upside down. As well as dealing with your emotional response, there will also be plenty of issues to contend with, particularly where there are formal investigations into the cause of death.
There may be police investigations and criminal prosecution of those responsible for the fatal accident, Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigations, coroner's investigations and inquest. For more information on these investigations, please see our section on coroner's inquests.
Our specialist claims solicitors are experienced in dealing with fatal accident cases and will help to guide you through all of these issues, and can also advise you about the possibility of a civil claim for damages arising out of the fatal accident.
