Pages On: Wrongful & Accidental Death

Of all the different types of personal injuries that solicitors deal with, accidental death has to be the most tragic. Something has to be seriously wrong for an accident to outrightly kill someone. Accidental deaths are unfortunately very common in a road traffic accidents. There are a very small percentage of fatal workplace accidents, but they are still a very clear and present danger. Even in the medical profession, wrongful death can occur when a patient suffers from neglectful care that could have otherwise prevented the death from occurring. If a loved one has died from accidental death, you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation on their behalf. Not only will it hold those responsible to account, it will help your family cope with the tragedy, as well as the financial implications.

I am very happy with the service that I got from Personal Injury Claims Aberdeen. My Insurer referred me to them when I had an accident, as I had no legal cover with my car insurance. I was kept informed at all times, even though the claim took some time to complete due to no fault of theirs. They persevered, and my son got compensated for his injuries when we had a crash that wasn't my fault, and he was a passenger. They were very professional and covered all basis. I will recommend the firm to anyone needing representation in this situation.

I had a fall on untreated ice in my work car park, which meant I had a trip to hospital and some time off work. I have also been left with some hearing impairment and Tinnitus. Thanks to the team at Personal Injury Claims Aberdeen, we came to a very satisfactory conclusion. The team kept me up to date at every turn and guided me through the whole process. I would recommend this firm, and would not hesitate to use them again.
