The tragedy and shock of losing a relative or friend unexpectedly is only made harder if you are concerned about the circumstances of a death. In such cases, it is not uncommon for a legal procedure called an inquest to be held, to establish the facts about the deceased person and where, when and how they died.
Part of the purpose of this procedure is to preserve the legal interests of the deceased person’s family or other interested parties. Our advocates can help in giving advice and assistance to those who are directly affected by the loss of family members and loved ones. We appreciate that these situations are fraught with emotion and stress, at a time when the grieving process is ongoing. We understand the importance of dealing with these cases sensitively, and our client centred-approach means that we will always put your interests at the forefront of the case, and will do our utmost to help you through this difficult process.
We can make initial contact with the Coroner’s office and the relevant authorities, and assist you in analysing the evidence, and instructing medical experts or pathologists to give second opinions if necessary. We accept instructions from families and individuals with a vested interest at the inquest hearing before a Coroner sitting alone, or a jury empanelled by the Coroner.
