An inquest is a formal enquiry into the cause of a person’s sudden death. Where the death is following an accident or some form of negligence it can be a traumatic experience.
This can be a time when you are glad to have a lawyer with you to explain the process and to help you to ask questions that you want answers to.
Our specialists have helped many clients at inquests – both when a claim is being considered and when they just want someone who is there for them. Where it is relevant, we can advise you on how to seek compensation depending on the decision of the inquest.
There is a range of conclusions that can be given by a Coroner and legal advice can help you determine if you have cause to consider pursuing a negligence claim. The inquest will hear from those directly involved at the time of the death and those who have looked into the causes of that death. They can be difficult to endure, and our team are only too aware of how upsetting inquests are for family members.
Our advice and experience will make the process as simple as it can be. Inquests can appear complex, filled with legal and medical jargon. We explain everything to you in plain and simple English. Costs and timescales are made clear at the start. We investigate fully what happened and establish the facts. It is important for you that we keep in contact – we promise to do that – and we answer any questions you have as promptly as we can.
When the inquest concludes, we will advise you about the options available to you and discuss whether or not you want to take things further.
