Fatal Accident Claim Solicitors

Experts in justice for families who have lost a loved one due to an accident or medical negligence.

Talk to us

The loss of a loved one as a result of a fatal accident or injury is an incredibly traumatic experience. That’s why it’s important to have someone on your side to offer support and guidance for what comes next.

If you’re thinking of making a claim following the death of a loved one, our warm and friendly medical negligence and serious personal injury team is here to help. 

The team is led by the highly experienced Fiona Tinsley — a Law Society Panel Accredited Solicitor with a strong background in analysis of liability and medical evidence. She has dedicated much of her working life to helping clients and their families through life-changing times. 

Fiona works alongside our wider team that includes Solicitors Andrew Tindall and Laura Earps as well as Paralegal Becky Addison.

We'll sensitively and thoroughly analyse your case to determine its strength and support you throughout every step of the legal process during this emotional and challenging time. We can also help to you to recover compensation to ensure that you and your family are financially secure for the future. 

We investigate and pursue claims under a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement. This means that you won’t need to pay any upfront legal costs.

Help with wills, probate and lasting powers of attorney

Our award-winning private client team can support you with a wide range of matters, including wills and probate, letters of administration (when there is no will) and lasting powers of attorney, as well as court of protection work (lasting powers of attorney), personal injury trusts (to ensure that your means-tested benefits aren’t affected) and estate planning.

As a full-service law firm, we also offer employment, income and pension loss advice as well as assistance with all manner of family law matters.

While we can’t guarantee that every case will be successful, we’re committed to ensuring that anyone who has lost a loved one has access to the right information and resources to seek further help. Find out more about fatal accident claims and how to access additional financial support below.  

I’ve found Fiona [Tinsley’s] attention to detail and compassion towards my being and case astonishing, to a level above and beyond what most would present. Fiona finally concluded my case, negotiating a substantial settlement on my (and my wife’s) behalf, helping to secure our future. I view Fiona as such an asset to your business. If ever asked, I would happily recommend Fiona and Brabners in regard to any clinical negligence claim in the future. You could not get a better service.

Firstly, l would like to thank you for your persistence and hard work on behalf myself and the girls. We can now have closure on what happened and at least some admittance was better than none. I just hope it doesn't happen to anyone else... It has been a long and tough road, but you have been caring and very easy to talk to and always had time to answer my questions. I will definitely recommend your services if the need arises in the future to friends and family.

Anonymous client 'JH'

Thank you' is just not enough to express my gratitude. You are a lovely person with a kind heart and you have helped me more than you know. I’m proud to be a part of the NHS and it truly saddened me that I had to consider taking legal action against an industry that I love, but you helped me understand how to channel those feelings in the right way. You have been a part of my life intimately, talking about issues that are very personal… I really can’t say ‘thank you’ enough.

Anonymous client 'TC'

Many thanks again for the fresh and professional you have taken to my claim. It has clearly made the difference that was needed and got things over the line.

Anonymous client 'JC'

I couldn't be more impressed with the service I received from Becky Addison. She took the time to thoroughly understand my situation, patiently listening to all my concerns and questions and providing clear, insightful explanations every step of the way. Her communication skills were outstanding, ensuring that I was always kept informed of developments and promptly responding to any questions I had. Thanks to Becky's expertise and unwavering support, we were able to achieve a favourable outcome in my case, exceeding my expectations. I'm immensely grateful for her guidance and representation and I wholeheartedly recommend Becky and Brabners to anyone in need of legal assistance.

Client feedback

Fiona Tinsley and Laura Earps were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable throughout my case, for which I was extremely grateful and managed to obtain a very successful outcome. Easy to contact and answered emails quickly and efficiently.
