Please get in touch today for a free consultation.

We fully understand the difficulties attached to even thinking about making a claim during these painful times. Our experts are here to provide the correct legal advice and assistance at your pace and when you are ready to proceed.

Fatal Injury Claims Explained

  • A Dependency Claim
  • A Claim on Behalf of the Deceased’s Estate

Claim applications are usually composed of the two, presented to our solicitors by the executor or administrator of the deceased’s estate. With all necessary details and paperwork we will progress.

If fatal injury to your loved one is the fault of another individual, Watson Woodhouse experts will make a claim on your behalf. We ensure you don’t experience or suffer financial hardship as a result.

We understand no amount of money awarded will ever be enough to remove the pain you’re feeling. It may however aid in the grief and recovery process whilst easing a financial burden you may be experiencing. A successful claim application will allow you to concentrate on healing and carrying on.

If a loved one has passed away due to an accident that wasn’t their fault, contact our specialist personal injury solicitors to discuss your options.
