Fatal Accident Compensations

Fatal Accident Compensations

No amount of compensation can bring back a family member or loved one.

However, if the worst does happen you may be entitled to a fatal accident claim for compensation either as a dependant or on behalf of the deceased’s estate.

For the families of the deceased, an inquest can be a worrying process. Tozers has one of the most experienced inquest teams in the country and our solicitors can help you prepare for the hearing and may be able to represent you at the inquest itself.

Fatal accident claims

If you have lost a family member or someone close to you whilst they were undergoing medical treatment and you fear that appropriate steps were not taken to avoid their death, then you may be able to bring a claim for compensation. Fatal accident claims can cover a wide range of medical treatments, but common problems include:

  • deaths following surgery
  • deaths as a result of delay in diagnosis of cancer
  • deaths arising from failures to monitor and recognise deterioration in a patient’s medical condition
  • deaths of new born babies in or immediately following childbirth
  • deaths by suicide of psychiatric patients following inadequate assessment or treatment

If we can prove that you have lost a family member or loved one as a result of medical negligence, then we will work to recover compensation for you to help secure your family’s future.
