Fatal Accident Cases | Jackson Boyd

Fatal Accidents

If a close family member, such a spouse or parent, has passed away as a result of an accident, it is devastating. Nothing can replace the person that has been taken away from you. The only thing that the law can provide in such heart-breaking circumstances is the ability to make a fatal accident claim. Jackson Boyd can help you. To minimise the stress you experience at this difficult time and to give you extra peace of mind, we offer a free initial consultation and operate on a no-win, no-fee basis. For more information on funding your personal injury claim please click here.

We understand what you are going through

We recognise and fully understand the pain, anguish and sorrow that you will be feeling as a result of the death of your loved one. Here at Jackson Boyd, we will never pretend that we can make things as they were, or make everything right again. What we can do though, is help you to establish whether it may be possible, under the law, to make a fatal accident claim for compensation as a result of what has happened. This can, in a very minor way, help to recognise your loss and provide some level of acknowledgement as to the terrible situation in which you find yourself.

We’ll help you get your life back on track

Jackson Boyd is a specialist firm of solicitors, and we regularly help people in circumstances such as yours with fatal accident claims. One of the most important things to us here at Jackson Boyd is getting to know you, your situation, and exactly what has happened. When you get in touch with us, we will take as much time and effort as is necessary to fully understand what led to the death of your loved one, as well as its impact on you and others left behind. This will enable us to establish whether the law will allow you to make a fatal accident claim.

Jackson Boyd will be here for you every step of the way. Our aim is not only to seek the best result possible for you in your tragic circumstances, but also to support you through your difficulties.

At Jackson Boyd we understand that you will be going through an exceptionally difficult period in your life. We will deal with your claim and will do so without causing you any additional inconvenience. We will investigate the accident circumstances which will often involve obtaining witness statements and evidence from the police. We will thereafter discuss with you the potential claims arising from the death of your loved one. The law in Scotland allows individuals to claim for “loss of society” which provides monetary compensation for the fact that a loved one has been taken away earlier than they should have been. A spouse can also claim for loss of support of a loved one as can other family members if they received financial support from the family member who was involved in the accident. We will also seek to recover any additional costs such as funeral costs on behalf of the family.

"I am extremely grateful to you for all your kind support, patience and professional assistance in this matter, and cannot start to express what a relief it is to arrive to this successful conclusion after such a lengthy process."
