Fatal Accidents

Sadly public liability accidents can cause fatal injuries. Our compassionate solicitors at Stacks Goudkamp know that no amount of compensation will alleviate your grief, or make right the loss of your loved one. However, it is important to seek advice as soon as possible after your loved one’s death so that we can take steps to protect your rights.

When a person dies due to the negligence of an individual or corporation, a damages claim can be brought on behalf of the deceased’s dependants. This will include the loss of income that your loved one would have earned and provided to the family had the fatal accident not happened, to help give the dependants some financial security for the future.

Only one fatal accident claim can be brought on behalf of all dependants. It is therefore particularly important to seek legal advice when the deceased had dependant children who have been left behind.

Our specialist compensation lawyers are dedicated to obtaining justice and securing full and fair compensation for wrongful deaths in public liability cases. We will take away the stress of bringing a compensation claim so that you have the time to grieve and deal with the other practicalities after losing a loved one. After all, you have already been through enough.

Our experienced public liability compensation lawyers have been bringing claims for fatal accidents for over forty years. As well as assisting the family members based in NSW, we act for families of victims of fatal accidents both interstate and abroad.
