Fatal accident compensation

Digby Brown have many years’ experience of helping and representing families who have suffered the loss of a family member or loved one as a result of an accident caused by someone else.

In these circumstances, we understand that nothing we can say or do will fully address the tragic loss of an individual. 

Every situation is tragic and unique. However, we understand that, when the time is right, there will be many questions that you will be seeking answers to.

We can offer legal advice and representation following the loss of a loved one; helping you get the answers you deserve about what happened. 

It may be the case that such a loss leaves you concerned about you and your family’s future financial security.

Through legal action, we can help you achieve an appropriate outcome that leaves you with peace of mind that your family will continue to be provided for in the future.

Experience in representing victims and families in Scotland

Digby Brown have represented victims and families affected by recent tragedies that have occurred in Scotland.

We have helped people caught up in a range of circumstances and we have been there for them through the entire process from finding out what went wrong to, where necessary, representation at Fatal Accident Inquiries to try to make sure it doesn’t happen again to anyone else.

Managing media interest

The high profile nature of these incidents has meant they have often attracted significant media and press interest. This can be difficult to deal with at an already very upsetting time and we can provide specialist advice and support to help you navigate and manage all aspects of media interest in something that has happened to your family.

We will never advise clients to engage or interact with the media unless they are comfortable doing so nor will we say anything either on their behalf or about the circumstances of what happened unless our clients are content for us to do so and it is to their benefit to do so.

At Digby Brown we are very clear that we will only engage with the media when it is directly in our clients’ interests to do so.

We recognise that other legal firms do not share this ethos and will actively seek to comment on cases in which they are involved.

In our view, this is publicity seeking of the worst kind and does nothing to serve the interests of individuals at a very emotional and difficult time in their lives.

Legal action for fatal accidents

We will always act in your interests, be on hand to guide you using our extensive legal experience and help you in any we can with the many other challenges of dealing with the loss of a loved one.

We are always sorry to hear about a tragic loss but we are always here to help if it does happen.

Contact our specialist solicitors today

In the first instance we urge you to contact us, either calling 0333 200 5925 or you may find it easier in the first instance to fill in an enquiry form and one of our Partners will call you back.

We are always happy to chat and give advice on your circumstances and the prospect of seeking answers through the legal system for the loss you have suffered.
