An inquest is a legal hearing that may be required after a person has died if there is any doubt as to the reason, timing or manner of the death. In some cases an Inquest may also investigate the identity of the deceased.
Family members of a deceased are deemed to be “interested persons” as well as anyone benefiting from an insurance policy, the insurance company, anyone whose action or inaction may have contributed to the death, e.g. medical staff or a member of a public body with a particular interest in the case. We regularly provide legal advice and representation to “interested persons” at inquests.
Inquests are held in the Coroner’s court and evidence can be heard from witnesses. There is in some cases a jury present. Our Inquest solicitors are skilled court practitioners with many years of experience and expertise in representing our clients at Inquests.
We have dealt with Inquests where sensitive issues are at stake. We represented a Public Official who had acted as a “whistle blower” into the work practices that surrounded the suicide of a colleague. The sensitivities were profound. Due to the representations made by us the Coroner referred the case to the Lord Chancellor’s Office and also made certain recommendations directly to local Police Constabulary.
