Sometimes, medical accidents or other types of accident (such as accidents at work or road traffic accidents) can result in someone losing their life.
If your loved one has died, words cannot express how sorry we are. You might not be interested in legal action. If you are, it can be an important step for you to take. You may be able to recover a sum of money from the person at fault. This can often be a lifeline for the loved ones left behind and makes sure that justice is served against the person or company to blame.
Perhaps most importantly, the law allows you to claim many types of future financial losses. This helps to take the burden of money worries off your shoulders, which can be a huge help, especially if you were dependent on your loved one’s income.
There may be other financial losses that you are bearing. For example, maybe your loved one looked after your children and now you need to pay for childcare. We can advise you on claiming those expenses. The aim is to put you back in the financial position you would have been in, if your loved one was still alive.
If you are struggling to come to terms with your loss, we can help you get the psychological care you may need. This can often help to support you through your grief and focus on talking about and treating any mental health issues that often hit after a death, such as depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder.
The sudden loss of a loved one is a terrible shock. Nothing can bring your loved one back but we can help you take the first steps in moving forward and support you when you need it most.
