Mrs M. and her family consulted Digby Brown Solicitors regarding the death of her son who died in a road traffic accident in Scotland. 

The family wanted to know how the road traffic accident happened and what the circumstances were around the accident and the tragic consequences.

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
