The effects of losing a loved one in a fatal accident are wide ranging and devastating. Every year, collisions on Northern Ireland roads and accidents at work result in very many serious injuries and some fatalities.

Bereaved partners and family members require the highest standards of legal representation to help them try to come to terms with what has happened and secure the highest possible quality of life. Francis Hanna & Company has a specialist team of solicitors that understands this and is dedicated to pursuing compensation claims on behalf of families of those who are killed in fatal accidents. The team includes very experienced solicitors with many years' experience of handling complex cases.

An individual's circumstances and needs are unique in every case. Our dedicated team ensures that these are taken into account, working with experienced experts to ensure that you receive the very best advice and maximising your claim. We work closely with special interest groups and charitable organisations to ensure that the latest guidelines are always considered and appropriate support, counselling and advice on financial matters is sought at the earliest opportunity.

Francis Hanna & Company has a number of specialist solicitors with extensive experience in successfully pursuing significant damages on behalf of the families of those who have been tragically killed in road collisions or as a result of previous exposure to asbestos. Our team of specialists has earned an unrivalled reputation for providing a caring and empathetic service which treats you as an individual and offers all the help, advice and support you will need.

The process of claiming compensation at this most difficult time can be complex, time-consuming and understandably distressing. Our solicitors will use all of their skill, knowledge and professionalism to ensure your claim is dealt with as quickly, simply and problem free as possible.

Our team is experienced in pursuing compensation claims following fatal road collisions on behalf of:

  • A husband or wife, or former husband or wife of the deceased

  • A civil partner or former civil partner of the deceased

  • A person who was living with the deceased as husband or wife for at least two years prior to the death

  • A parent or other dependant of the deceased

  • A person who was treated by the deceased as his or her parent

  • A child or other dependant of the deceased

We offer a free, no obligation initial consultation where we will discuss the circumstances of your case with you. We will tell you if we believe you could pursue a claim and clearly explain your options to you, enabling you to make an informed choice that best suits you and your needs.

Some clients might already have cover to pay for the case, although they may not be aware of it. Many household and car insurance policies actually provide cover to pay for a case such as this, while members of trade unions might also have a similar funding policy.

Our team of experts will closely examine your existing policies and advise you on the best way to find the claim, helping you make the right choice and ensuring you have complete peace of mind.
