Results for the victims of medical mistakes | Experts in medical negligence cases

An inquest is an inquiry conducted by a Coroner into the circumstances surrounding a death.  Claiming compensation for a fatal injury to a loved one may not be a top priority for you as you grieve. However, receiving compensation may be vital, for example, to support a child now left without a parent.

When someone dies from natural causes the death will be certified so that it can be officially registered. Sometimes, however, things aren’t so clear cut and, for example, there may be suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.

In cases where the cause of death is uncertain, the death will be reported to the Coroner, who can arrange for a post mortem. This will be done by an independent pathologist, for example, where there have been allegations of clinical negligence. The Coroner can arrange for an inquest to be held publicly where the family of the deceased or their legal representative are given the opportunities to ask questions of witnesses and address the Coroner.

If an inquest is arranged we can provide legal representation. We provide honest, understanding and effective support for you and your family throughout the inquest and any subsequent investigation.
