Inquest Solicitors

An inquest can be called where the facts surrounding an individual’s death need to be established. The inquest is called by the Coroner who will then carry out an investigation into that person’s death. Often this can be a lengthy process involving obtaining of documents, calling of witnesses, and obtaining of expert evidence.

Dean Wilson LLP are Expert Solicitors Dealing with Inquests

The purpose of the Inquest is to establish the following points:

  • Who was the person that died;
  • Where did that person die;
  • When did that person die; and
  • How did that person die

Why do I need an Inquest Solicitor?

Usually, the parties who could be responsible for the person’s death will have legal representation at the inquest to protect their interests. We have extensive experience of acting for families at inquests to ensure that everything is done to identify any failings that may have contributed to their loved one’s death and ensure that there are appropriate changes to ensure that a similar incident cannot happen again.
Some examples of where we represent families at inquests are:

  • Accidents at work such as on constructions sites;
  • Deaths in hospital or healthcare settings;
  • Deaths whilst being detained under the Mental Health Act; and
  • Deaths whilst in the custody of Police

No Win No Fee Inquest Solicitors

We are passionate about achieving justice for families and to hold to account authority bodies who could be responsible for a death of a loved one. Often we have been able to use verdicts from inquests as vital evidence to then bring a claim for compensation, and loss of dependency afterwards.

All our Solicitors dealing with Inquests are happy to work on a no win no fee basis, and in certain circumstances pro bono.
