Case study – Family of man fatally injured in car accident sue negligent driver for damage

road traffic accident claims belfastHHD Solicitor:  Caroline Dunlop, Associate Solicitor, specialising in personal injury claims


Settlement:      £25,000


What happened: Our Client’s son was fatally injured in a high speed car chase with the police


How HHD Solicitors helped: Our Client’s son lived with her and her husband until his death. He provided financial support from his earnings each month and other services around the house, for example cutting the grass, washing the windows and walking the dog. As her son was over the age of 18, our Client was not entitled to any claim for bereavement. We brought a successful claim against the third party car insurance company and were able to secure compensation for our client in the sum of £25,000 for loss of dependency and services together with funeral expenses.

If a member of your family or loved one has been involved in a fatal RTA then you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation. We will deal with your case in a sensitive but efficient manner. To find out more about how our specialist personal injury lawyers could help you, please email on
