When faced with an inquest into the death of a loved one, it can be an incredibly difficult time for you and your family.
Our Actions Against Public Authorities solicitors can interpret the Coroners (Inquests) Rules 2013 which apply to the specific procedures in place which make up an inquest.
An inquest can be held if a death has occurred within a public authority, or in certain other circumstances. An inquest is necessary to investigate the nature of the death and to factually record what happened. A coroner’s inquest will not deal with any criminal proceedings instigated as a result of the inquest’s finding.
We can assist with the following:
Our Action Against Public Authorities department has in-depth experience dealing with inquests. We can direct you to a specialist team of individuals that can support you through this process. Should you wish to appeal the result of an inquest, we can prepare and make a claim of appeal on your behalf.
We aim to make sure you are treated fairly and are professionally represented by our expert solicitors. Where an inquest relates to an alternative department of law, we can direct you to our most relevant team of solicitors for your case.
If the death of a loved one has resulted in an inquest, or you wish to appeal the results of an inquest, contact Duncan Lewis Action Against Public Authorities solicitors on 0333 772 0409.
