If you have lost a member of your family in a fatal event you may be entitled to claim compensation. Whether death has occurred as a result of an accident, injury or medical negligence, our team of expert lawyers have experience in taking forward detailed investigations of the facts and circumstances which led to the death, before advising on how best to pursue a claim for compensation on behalf of the family.

Benefits we bring to you 

Our team of highly experienced lawyers will provide clear advice to you on your prospects of successfully recovering compensation, and on the likely amount of that compensation. We have an impressive success rate, so you're in safe hands. Our expert solicitors are highly experienced, and are ranked in Legal 500, an independent directory of recommended lawyers.

How much is your claim worth?  We maximise the compensation payable to our clients. We will provide you with an accurate valuation of your claim and will fight on your behalf to negotiate the best possible deal for you. We have a proven track record of recovering record breaking amounts for our clients.

Use our compensation calculator for an introductory guide to the financial value of claims, depending on the seriousness of the injury and the length of time you have had the symptoms.

We have a variety of funding options available, depending on your individual circumstances. The most popular is our 'no win no fee' arrangement, where you do not pay for our services unless we successfully recover compensation for you.

A personal story

"Morton Fraser stood up for our families' rights and helped us after my brother was killed at work.

We were let down by the first firm of solicitors we went to and had to find a new firm at short notice.  Morton Fraser helped my family raise a claim against my brother's employers and the owners of a dangerous work site.

The case had to go all the way to court and start being heard by the judge before the employers buckled and accepted the correct level of compensation for the whole family. The employers had made five previous offers which Morton Fraser advised us to reject.  I am so pleased we did reject them, as we ended up getting the correct level of compensation in the end.

I feel justice was done and that we were vindicated."  -  Mark Taylor, a Morton Fraser client
