Fatal Claims

We have the knowledge and proven track record of dealing with medical negligence claims that have resulted in death and we have helped many families investigate the circumstances that led to their loved one dying.

The loss of a loved one can have a devastating impact on a family. No level of compensation can ever represent the distress, grief and sorrow felt when a family member passes away. The financial impact of losing a contributor to a household income can add greatly to the distress being felt.

We know that this will always be an upsetting event. However, when it happens as a consequence of medical negligence, the outcome can be devastating both emotionally and often financially.

We work closely with family members to investigate what has happened and whether but for the action or inaction of a medical professional the death of their loved one could have been avoided.

The law in Scotland allows a wide range of family members with the right to pursue a claim for the loss of a loved one. The law also allows those who were being financially supported by a family member who has died to not also have to money worries for the future as well. Finally, when a loved one has also sadly suffered before passing away their claim for that pain and suffering can also be made after their death.

We understand what is important to a family who have experienced a member of their family passing away because of the involvement or lack of involvement of a medical professional. We are here to listen and support a family through the process of understanding what happened and why their loved one passed away.
