Death in a Care or Nursing Home

Inquests into a Death in a Care Home or Nursing Home


Inquests into a death which occurs in a care home or nursing home falls outside the jurisdiction of public authorities, since as a health and care provider, any inquest held can fall into a clinical negligence claim.


Care homes will be regulated by the Care Quality Commission, whilst the nurses and health care assistants themselves are registered and monitored by the Nursing & Midwifery Council.


Who can help me with an inquest?


Our solicitors have a breadth of knowledge dealing with inquests which arise from the death of someone in a care or nursing home. Should you require assistance processing an inquest, preparing for a hearing or appealing the results of an inquest, our expert solicitors will support you through it.


Following the inquest, where negligence has been proven to be the cause of death, a criminal investigation may take place to prove beyond doubt who was accountable for the neglect, resulting in the death of that individual in care. It is essential that you have legal representation throughout the proceedings. Duncan Lewis’ solicitors are experts in health and care negligence claims.
