Our nationwide team of Inquest Solicitors have many years experience helping families at this difficult time. For legal representation at an Inquest or a free consultation call Slater and Gordon Lawyers on freephone 0808 175 8000 or contact us online.
We do understand that this is the most difficult of times for families. Often the Inquest will be the only occasion when you can have your questions surrounding the death answered.
The Coroner's Court is not a Civil Court and there are limits on what can be achieved. In particular, the rules prevent the Coroner from blaming specific individuals for a death and witnesses are not required to answer questions that may incriminate them. Also the only purpose of an Inquest is to find out where, when and how someone died.
Our expert Inquest Solicitors will make sure you have the information and support you need and will ensure that the hearing is fair, and that you can find out as much as the process allows.
In recent years the Human Rights Act has had a particularly significant impact on the way deaths, especially those in hospital or NHS care homes, are dealt with. We ensure that our Inquest Solicitors are always up to date with the law in this rapidly developing area.
Slater and Gordon Lawyers can provide immediate legal representation and support anywhere in the UK from our offices in London, Manchester, Watford, Liverpool, Chester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Cambridge, Milton Keynes, Preston and Wrexham.
Solicitors at Slater and Gordon are members of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel, the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) & the Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers (PEOPIL).
