Fatal Injury

A fatal injury is defined as an accident or incident which results in death.

It’s extremely difficult to lose a loved one at any time, but it’s especially traumatic and difficult when they are taken from us unexpectedly following an accident. Life is cut short due to someone else’s negligence or responsibility, leaving a massive void in the whole family which can never be filled again.

We understand that filing a compensation claim for the loss of a loved one might not be the top priority for anyone that’s dealing with grief and trauma during this difficult time, however we understand that without that person, it can lead to financial pressures and insecurities about the future.
Funeral costs can be considerable and if you are responsible for covering the cost of the rent, mortgage repayments, bills and food, it can leave those affected in a position of financial vulnerability, leaving them stressed, worried and fearful of the future.

Then there’s the personal aspect of not having that person around anymore. They may have been your support system. A person you could confide in and talk to about anything. A kind and compassionate individual that loved you unconditionally. A person that you built a life with and got married to and raised Children with. You may have done everything together. Holidays, Household chores, family days out and date nights to name a few. Someone you felt comfortable with and who brought happiness and joy to your life.

No amount of money can bring back your loved one, but seeking compensation with the help of a specialist solicitor can make your family’s financial future more secure.

Legal Assist has a specialist panel of Fatal Injury solicitors which are dedicated to helping bereaved families secure compensation following their loss. They aim to support the whole family during this difficult time and will look to secure the best possible outcome for the family’s future without that person.


This isn’t limited to just compensation; this means they will listen to you and your family’s needs and where appropriate, arrange family support services such as therapy, help with your finances, look into any wills and probate and any other aspect of your lives that can help make the future more secure.

No win No fee

Our panel solicitors can handle your case on a no win, no fee basis which means there’s nothing to pay upfront and nothing to pay if your case is unsuccessful.

If your case is successful, our panel solicitors take between 25%- 50% from your awarded compensation. This varies amongst our panel members and will be dependent on the law firm we recommend you to as well as your claim type.

Full terms & conditions will be included in your solicitor’s agreement so please read this carefully and speak to them if you are unsure of anything before signing. For more information, please visit our No win No fee page.

Please note: You do not need to use a claims management company to make a claim for compensation. You can use a solicitor or company of your own choice or alternatively you can make a claim yourself for free via the person/entity you wish to claim from or via the relevant ombudsman service.
