The time following the death of a family member is never an easy period. If you are then told that there will need to be an Inquest to look at the events which led to the death this can make the process very difficult. However the Inquest is a very important procedure for family members as this can explore and answer many questions that the family may have about what happened in the time leading up to the death.
It is not just family members who may find themselves involved in an inquest. There can be many other individuals or businesses who are deemed to be interested parties. If you are a business owner and/or employer you could require representation during an Inquest. Examples of this could be where a resident at a care home dies within the home or where a death occurs at a workplace.
At Allington Hughes Law we are extremely conscious of how difficult a time it can be and that is why it is advisable to seek advice and guidance from a specialist solicitor who can not only advise you regarding the law in the area, the procedure involved in a Coroner’s Court but also provide you with support during the process. A solicitor can also ensure that the questions you want answering are answered during the Inquest.
We have been advising our local community for over 190 years and pride ourselves on being both experts in our field whilst being friendly and approachable. This can be extremely important at such an emotive time.
