Get the support & justice your family needs

Harper Macleod has specialist fatal accident solicitors who can help you and your family following the loss of a loved one. We know that no amount of money can ever compensate for the trauma you and your family suffer following losing a loved one. As experts in dealing with fatal accidents we know how important it is to get answers and we will support you and your family during this traumatic time.

Our specialist personal injury lawyers will help you. We don't charge you a fee for your claim and we do not take any of your compensation so you can instruct us with confidence at no costs to you. We will fight for justice and fairness for you and your family.

Our experience of fatal accidents includes

  • Road traffic accidents & other road accidents
  • Work place accidents
  • Public transport accidents
  • Exposure to hazardous substances
  • Aviation including helicopter accidents & maritime accidents

Under Scottish law the range of people who are able to receive compensation as a result of a fatal accident is wide ranging. Compensation payments to relatives in Scotland are higher than in England and Wales.
