Inquest representation

An inquest can be an intimidating place for family and loved ones. If the death is somehow connected with authority in any way such as a death in prison, police custody or a hospital in unusual circumstances then the authority will be represented by lawyers.

In some cases this may mean a number of different authorities being represented such as the police, the prison service, hospitals, mental health services and others. These cases often attract publicity and a media circus ensues. This all serves to make it very hard for the family to try and find out for themselves what actually happened. This is when it is very important for you to be represented and to ensure that your family’s needs are not lost in the process.
