The purpose of an inquest is to establish the cause of a death and the circumstances that led to the death. The inquest will hear from those directly involved at the time of the death. The inquest process can be a difficult and traumatic experience for the family.
If you believe that someone else is to blame for the death of a loved one, you should consult a solicitor. They will be able to support you at the inquest and can explain the legal, technical and medical jargon.
An inquest does not seek to apportion blame, but the outcome of the inquest can help to determine whether the family should consider making a claim for compensation.
Mooney Everett Solicitors offer an initial consultation for bereaved family members. This gives you the opportunity to discuss the circumstances of the accident with a specialist injury lawyer, explore your options and assess whether you may be entitled to compensation. We will explain everything in plain English, including how your claim could be funded by a no win, no fee arrangement, meaning that you would have no legal costs if the claim is not successful.
