We’ve represented bereaved families for more than three decades. During this time, we have earned a reputation for our ‘family first approach’ to getting justice – and the truth for our clients.

We understand that every incident that leads to a fatality has a devastating impact on family life. Our experienced team ensures that the legal process adhered to is in the best interests of the family.

Personal service for your family

The sensitive nature of fatal injury claims means we prioritise your comfort at a difficult time. This includes visiting you personally to discuss the incident which led to the death of your loved one.

Truth and justice 

Our team secures injury compensation, bereavement awards and dependency claims for families but we understand that truth and justice are the most important things families want to achieve and we play a proactive and supportive role during the process.

If you or your family was financially dependent on the deceased individual it is essential that you instruct solicitors who are experienced in the financial procedures surrounding people involved in a fatal incident.

Our firm is a keen supporter of numerous national charities which help people come to terms with fatal or traumatic incidents including Brake (the road safety charity), The Spinal Injuries Association and Headway.
