Fatal accidents at work
Losing a loved one is always a difficult and emotionally distressing experience. Losing a family member as a result of a fatal accident at work can add to the pain and heartbreak.
Employers have a duty to their employees to minimise the risk of injuries occurring. However, when companies fail to meet these obligations, the results can be devastating.
Whilst no amount of money could ever compensate you for the loss of a loved one, lawyers at Irwin Mitchell can provide you with the support and guidance that you need to ease the financial burdens of losing a family member to a fatal accident at work.
Our lawyers can provide you with jargon-free advice and support through the complexities of fatal accident at work claims, helping you to secure the compensation that your family deserves.
Experience and understanding in fatal injury claims
Examples of workplace accidents that could lead to a fatal injury include:
- A slip, trip or fall
- Being struck by a falling object
- Excessive exposure to chemicals and harmful substances
- Military accidents
- Accidents caused by faulty or inappropriate work equipment
Fatal accident claims have additional complexities which we can help you to understand.
Our experienced lawyers will guide you through the fatal injury claims process in plain English, ensuring that any claim includes all issues that you are facing. This will include compensation for the pain and suffering, any financial damages that you may have incurred, such as lost income and funeral expenses, as well as compensation for any dependents, including any surviving spouse or co-habitant, children or parents, grandchildren or grandparents.
