Fatal Car Accident Compensation in Lincolnshire
Welcome to Nigel Askew Solicitors, we are a firm of personal injury solicitors that specialise in serious and fatal car accident compensation in Lincolnshire.
Our team of solicitors have over 20 years of experience in representing clients and their families in claims involving serious injury and fatalities. We understand that the sudden loss of a family member in a car accident is truly devastating for everyone involved and recognise that this can leave some families struggling to cope both emotionally and financially.
No amount of financial compensation can make up for the loss or very serious injury of a loved one, however a compensation claim can help you to make the vital adjustments to your life, both in the short and longer term.
We offer all new enquiries a free and no obligation initial case assessment. To speak with one of our expert solicitors today, please call 01507 609027 or complete the form on this page, indicating the most convenient time for us to call you.

Are you entitled to make a claim?
We understand that you may be unsure whether you can make a claim for fatal car accident compensation on someone else’s behalf, which is why we aim to answer your questions during the initial phone consultation with us.
We will ask you a series of questions to help us understand how the accident happened and listen to everything you want to tell us about your experience. The questions that we will ask you include:
- The date and location of the accident
- How the accident happened
- Who was involved in the accident
- Whether someone was at fault for the accident
We know that talking about an accident which has caused the death of a loved one can be distressing, which is why we often attend clients in their own homes, rather than on the phone.
The law involving fatal car accident claims
In the UK there is a legal act which covers Fatal Accidents called The Fatal Accidents Act 1976. Under the provisions of this law, the dependents of someone killed in an accident which was not their fault are entitled to make a claim for financial compensation.
The Fatal Accidents Act 1976 defines a ‘dependent’ as:
- A spouse or former spouse.
- Someone cohabiting with the deceased as husband, wife or civil partner for a minimum of two years prior to the accidental death.
- Children by blood plus adopted children and those who become a legal part of the family via marriage or civil partnership.
- Parents or older relatives, including grandparents, great grandparents and those acting as a parent, such as a step-parents or a guardian.
- Immediate family like brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews and aunts or uncles.
You may also be able to claim a statutory award for bereavement, under the Fatal Accident Act, which is paid by the other side’s insurance company. This payment is made to the surviving spouse, regardless of any dependency claim.
If it was your partner who suffered a fatal accident, you could make a fatal road traffic claim as a dependent if you were partially or entirely financially reliant on them. To discuss this in more detail, please call our Fatal Accident team now on 01507 609027.
How much does it cost to claim?
We do not charge our clients any fees to get a new claim up and running.
We use “Conditional Fee Agreements” to fund all of our claims. These agreements are also commonly referred to as “No Win No Fee Agreements” or “CFA’s”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
For more information about No Win No Fee agreements or to start your claim, contact Nigel Askew Solicitors today by calling 01507 609027.
How long do I have to claim?
The law in England & Wales states that you have 3 years from the date of an accident to start a personal injury claim.
If you are unsure whether you can make a claim, contact our friendly solicitors today who can advise you whether your personal circumstances allow you to make a claim.
