Fatal Accidents

Solicitors in Essex & London

The Personal Injury team at Pinney Talfourd have provided specialist legal advice relating to a variety of fatal injury claims for many years. Our solicitors have the sensitivity and expertise to deal with the tragic personal and financial consequences that result from fatal accidents.

Our lawyers have significant experience dealing with many types of fatal accident claims, including those resulting from vehicle and workplace accidents, industrial disease, assault or terrorism.

There are two different legal elements to a fatal accident claim, although these can overlap:

  • The Law Reform (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1934. This allows a claim to be brought on behalf of the estate:
  • The Fatal Accidents Act 1976 (as amended). This allows a claim to be brought on behalf of the dependants of the deceased.

Most fatal accidents are brought by, or on behalf of, dependants and we have recovered significant sums in damages on behalf of dependants and claims brought on behalf of the estate.

Our personal injury solicitors take particular care in establishing at an early stage if a viable claim exists.

We offer a free initial meeting to discuss your claim regarding the fatal accident of a loved one, assess the merits of any action and to try and give you an indication of the compensation you may be entitled, as well as the likely duration of your case.  We act for most of our clients on a no win no fee basis. Our free initial consultations can be conducted at any of five offices in Essex and London. If more convenient and less upsetting for you, we are happy to arrange a home visit.

** Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are currently conducting all meetings by telephone or some video calling services. Please contact us for more details. **
