Fatal Accident & Injury Claims Solicitors

It is hard to imagine how claiming can make up for the actual loss where an accident has led to a fatality. Our Personal Injury team are here to help you find justice for those who can no longer do so themselves.

Here for you when the unexpected happens

When a person is killed as a result of someone else’s negligence the dependants of that person may be entitled to compensation. This could include the spouse, children and parents, depending on the circumstances.

Our Personal Injury team truly care about your situation and understand how hard of a time this may be. We have helped many of our clients get the justice they deserve in times like this.

I’d like to thank John especially for his kind help and time to keep track of matters and offering help and advise every step of the way. He was patient and caring and very knowledgeable in handling my case. I’d be more than happy to recommend his expertise to families and friends as they’d be under very good care.

After The Event Policy ‘ATE’: After the Event Insurance is an insurance policy taken out when you sign the No Win No Fee Agreement. It protects you throughout the claim from being responsible for any payments if the claim is not successful.

Causation: Establishing the link between negligence/breaches of statutory duty and the injury/illness suffered.

Liability: Legal responsibility for acts or omissions.

Negligence: Failing to use the appropriate level of care and competence required in the circumstances. A negligent act or omission may result in somebody sustaining an injury.

No Win No Fee (CFA): No Win No Fee Agreements (also referred to as Conditional Fee Agreements) mean that solicitors take no payment for their work unless they win the case. If your claim is not successful, then you may be liable for the other party’s legal costs, but your ATE policy will provide insurance to cover that eventuality. If you win the case, you will receive compensation and the majority of your legal costs will be recoverable from the other side.

Occupational Illness: Diseases or medical conditions which arise as a result of exposure at work to substances such as asbestos.

Quantum: The value of your claim.

Schedule of Loss: A document which sets out the financial losses sustained as a direct result of suffering injury or disease e.g. loss of earnings, travelling expenses, cost of care.

Success Fee: The fee we charge which is based upon the amount of time we spend working on your claim. It cannot exceed 25% of the damages you are awarded.
