Personal Injury Claims

Fatal road traffic accident claims

Any fatal road traffic accident is a harrowing, tragic event. Sadly, we still see far too many road users of all kinds – drivers, pedestrians, motorcyclists and cyclists – killed on UK roads.

The loss of a loved one is difficult enough to process and deal with, but if that loved one has left behind a family that was financially dependent on them, it can be even more difficult.

Making a compensation claim when you are still grieving might seem like the last thing on your mind, but if your family’s financial security is a stake, then we recommend speaking to a solicitor as quickly as possible.

Browell Smith & Co will handle your claim sensitively and professionally; we will take care of the details while your family comes to terms with what has happened.

Why use Browell Smith & Co to make a fatal RTA claim?

Browell Smith & Co has many years’ experience of working with the families of those who have been killed in fatal road traffic accidents.

At this difficult time, you need a family law firm that you can trust: one who knows the processes involved and who will deal with your case sympathetically, while fighting to get your family the financial security you deserve.

We understand what you and your family are going through: we understand how keen you are to be able to get your life back on track and carry on doing the things you love as quickly as possible.

Progressing a fatal RTA claim can be more challenging because there are sometimes no living witnesses to describe what has happened. Browell Smith & Co will work with the police and gather the necessary information and establish the facts of the accident, to progress your compensation claim as efficiently as possible.

We take a sympathetic, client-first approach and will treat your rehabilitation as an absolute priority, concentrating on restoring you as closely as possible to the condition you were in before the accident.

Note that even if there has not been a successful criminal prosecution, we can still help to make a civil compensation claim.
