Inquests and Inquiries claims - Medical Negligence Solicitors

Inquests and Inquiries

The death of a loved one often leaves many questions, and a coroner's inquest can go some way to providing answers. The information arising from an inquest can also form part of the evidence in a clinical negligence claim.

We have strong links with the best barristers specialising in inquest procedure, and we can ensure that your views are presented to the coroner properly. We offer a free initial discussion to talk through your issue, offer our opinion and guide you through the options available.

Fatal Claims

Not all fatal injuries lead to an inquest, and whether one has taken place or not, we can advise on all the options available in pursuing a claim. Where it can be shown that someone else was at fault for a person's death, we may be able to assist in achieving compensation for the loss.

Our team has extensive experience in bringing claims for the death of a loved one, and has built a reputation for handling cases with skill and respect.
