Fatal accident claim to get answers

Digby Brown’s Solicitors raised the fatal accident claim against the driver. As part of the process, we were able to investigate the road traffic accident and how it happened.

Argued victim was not wearing a seat belt

The defenders initially argued contributory negligence on the basis that an allegation that the deceased wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. 

Fatal accident claim goes to court
