Fatal accident claim after sister killed in accident

Man looking to camera

A young mother was killed while travelling in Ayrshire when a vehicle drove on the wrong side of the road, directly in front of the road the bus was travelling along.

Brother of victim: “The accident really tore our family apart, smashed everything to smithereens.

“I avoid travelling where the road accident happened, I feel terrible every time I travel that way.”

Get answers and justice for sister after fatal accident

“I have no anger towards the other driver, I know who he is and he didn’t just walk away from the accident – he was badly injured as well and is facing charges.

“I just want to know if it was a genuine accident. I would consider him a professional driver so I just want to know why the accident happened and have justice for my sister.”

Fatal accident claim for entire family

Digby Brown Solicitors were recommended to the family for pursuing a fatal accident claim.

Damian White, Partner at Digby Brown’s Ayr office, helped the entire family pursue a fatal accident claim against the driver who caused the road accident.

“I was very impressed with the service throughout the claim; it was really personal. I’ve dealt with lawyers before and this was really different.

“Damian came out to visit my mum in her house so she didn’t have to travel to their office and I remember I sent an email on a Sunday – not expecting a reply until the next day as it was the weekend - but Damian replied the same day.”

“All the staff worked hard, and were compassionate throughout the case. It really was a top level of service they provided over the 7 months.

“I would happily recommend Digby Brown to anybody.”

Fatal accident compensation

“It was never about the money for me, it won’t ever replace her.

“I can now move on with my life thanks to Digby Brown and concentrate on the driver being brought to justice.”
