Fatal accident claims

If your family member was involved in a fatal accident at work, you will need expert legal representation from a specialist personal injury solicitor experienced in dealing with such claims.

Work-related deaths can be extremely traumatic for those left behind, and the process of finding out exactly what happened can be long and drawn-out. At Blackwater Law, we’ve got an excellent track record when it comes to fatal accident claims and endeavour to make the process as painless as possible. If you suspect someone related to you died as a result of their employer’s actions or negligence, you can get in touch with us today to find out more about fatal accident compensation and making a claim.

When someone dies at work, the police, local authority and coroner are usually informed. There is a protocol that decides how these authorities should work together to investigate a work-related death. If the police find that no crime was committed or that there is no case for manslaughter, other authorities can step in if they feel that health and safety offences were committed. This action can be taken before or after the coroner’s inquest. The Health and Safety Executive agency or HSE may become involved if it seems that health and safety laws were violated by the employer. There are many different sector-specific agencies tasked with enforcing the law like The Office of Rail Regulation, who look after railways.
