Common types and causes

Fatal accidents can happen as a result of a whole manner of situations including road traffic accidents, accidents at work and even industrial diseases. More commonly, they are due to road traffic accidents, medical negligence or even industrial disease. Each fatal accident case is unique, and the results and affects it has are extremely traumatic.


The impact that a fatality has on a family is catastrophic. Not only will you be left to grieve and deal with the loss, you may also find that there is a big impact in terms of the financial burden and care of other family members. We make it our job to support and guide you through the next steps regarding compensation and ensuring that the financial future of any dependents is taken care of.

Why you should claim

In what is already a daunting time there are probably a lot of unanswered questions surrounding finances and dependents. At First4lawyers we can pursue claims on behalf of:

  • A spouse or former spouse of the deceased
  • A current or present civil partner of the deceased
  • A child, parent or other dependent of the deceased
  • A person who has been living with the deceased for at least two years

All of our highly-qualified solicitors are here to help and support you at this extremely difficult time. No money can bring back the person you love and have lost, but it can help to support you in the future.
