Inquest Representation

Finding out what went wrong

What is involved?

If there is going to be an inquest into the death of a relative, it is important to get legal advice quickly. Our specialist team can help you with the process, while being sensitive to your situation. We will provide advice and guidance to you at this difficult time, liaise with the Coroner’s officer and we can appear on your behalf at a coroner’s inquest.

We will also ask questions and obtain information at the inquest that may answer some or all of your concerns and which may otherwise not be disclosed. Coroners are expressly prohibited from dealing with matters of criminal or civil responsibility, but after the inquest we will advise you if the evidence heard may be used to form the basis of a successful civil claim for compensation.

Call us now to see how our Inquest Representation team can help you.
