The first two questions are quickly answered.  It’s the Why? and How? that is often left waiting for answers.  Just look at the 27 years wait for the Hillsbourgh families.  However in most cases after carful analysis of the evidence and careful negotiations with the Health and Safety Executive, Police, Experts and Coroner, the fatal accident claim solicitors will be able to find the answers that the family need.

Once the preliminary investigations are completed, there then remains the issue of compensation.  As fatal work accident claim solicitors, we appreciate that it is not about the compensation but money does help as the bills don’t stop rolling in. The initial cost will be funeral expenses.  The average funeral cost is said to be somewhere in the region of £7,000 to £9,000.  That is a lot of money for most families.  If you combine this initial cost that bereaved families have to find with the loss of an income it is a double hit against the family’s finances.
