INQUEST CLAIMS

For free, expert advice on fatal accident claims and inquests, please contact our medical negligence solicitors on 0161 207 2020.

If somebody close to you has died whilst undergoing medical care or treatment and you suspect that death may have been caused by negligent treatment or lack of care, or that appropriate steps were not taken to prevent a death, you may be able to claim for medical negligence compensation on behalf of the estate of the deceased. This may be vital in recovering funds for the deceased’s beneficiaries, including dependent children and spouses. Although the remit of HM Coroner in an inquest is limited to establishing who died, when and where and in what circumstances; evidence produced at an inquest may also assist in bringing a successful claim in the civil courts.

We provide honest, understanding and effective support for you and your family throughout the inquest and any subsequent civil investigations.

How We Can Help You With Your Fatal Claim Or Inquest Enquiry

We have experience of inquests where deaths have occurred as a result of accidents at work, road accidents, or substandard medical care. We can assist you with our extensive experience of providing families with advice, support and representation throughout the inquest process.

It is difficult to deal with the loss of a loved one under any circumstance, but when you are faced with the possibility of an inquest, it is important that you have the assistance and guidance of an experienced solicitor.

The coroner’s role is also extended to report to the secretary of state on any actions needed to be taken to prevent any future deaths. At the end of the process the coroner may make recommendations to those responsible for managing hospitals, care homes and other medical service providers to ensure that lessons are learned for the future.

I am grateful to Ralli Solicitors for their support and patience throughout the past four years to bring my matter to a conclusion. They were very reassuring at all times.
