The death of a spouse or close relative can result in unimaginable emotional trauma and may also bring further emotional strain for families and dependants in the form of financial loss and uncertainty. Although fatal accident claims and inquests cannot turn back the clock or heal emotional wounds, they can help provide practical support and security while providing answers to resolve uncertainty.

Fatal accident claims with Healys

A number of people lose their lives in fatal accidents in the UK each year. Healys can provide you with an experienced fatal accident solicitor who can offer commitment and support to claimants who have lost a loved one in any of the following types of circumstance:

• Fall from height accidents

• Construction accidents

• Car, motorcycle and cycling accidents

• Workplace accidents

• Forklift accidents

Who can make a fatal accident claim?

It is not only husbands, wives and children who can make fatal accident claims. The following relations and dependents may be able to obtain compensation following the death of a loved one:

• A spouse or former spouse

• A civil partner or former civil partner

• A cohabitee (if he or she had lived with the deceased for at least two years)

• A parent of the deceased

• A child or other descendant

• A child who was treated as blood offspring

Fatal accident inquests

An inquest is there to help you understand the circumstances surrounding a fatal accident and may even assist your solicitor in making a claim for compensation.

Healys  can assist grieving families through the process of an inquest. By compiling a file of relevant documents and evidence, such as medical records and accidents reports, we can help ensure that the inquest hearing is both thorough and informed. Above all, we can help ensure that your interests are represented and that, where you desire, you are able to ask witnesses the crucial questions and, hopefully, receive the answers you need.

Any evidence that comes to light during an inquest hearing may later be of assistance in securing a favourable outcome to a fatal accident claim.
