Fatal Accidents

Around 2,500 people are killed on our roads every year and around 150 people killed in work related accidents each year.

Of those killed in work related accidents over half are due to falls from heights, contact with moving machinery and being struck by a vehicle.

Following a fatal accident there is likely to be a coroner’s inquest. It is important for the family of the victim to attend the inquest with legal representation as the Solicitor can often ask the pertinent questions that the family may not be in any state to consider asking or may not think are relevant questions.

The death of a loved one as a result of an accident can result in feelings of unnecessary loss, injustice, grief, and uncertainty for those left behind, specifically children.

Our expert Solicitors at Burd Ward understand the loss suffered and the want for justice following a fatal accident. Often compensation for the loss is the last thing on the families mind, understandably.  We will handle your claim with sincerity, care and compassion and we will help you and get you the right support, advice and assistance from the outset.

If you require representation at the Coroner’s inquest then we are happy to assist.

If you or someone you know has been involved in a fatal accident and you want advice on what steps to take to ensure that the claim is handled correctly then please do not hesitate to contact our specialist Solicitors who will be happy to help.
