Home / Services / Asbestos And Mesothelioma / Inquests After Fatal Asbestos Disease

Sadly, asbestos diseases can be fatal. If your loved one dies from an asbestos-related disease such as mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis, a legal investigation or inquest into their death will be carried out by the local coroner. This is a legal requirement if doctors believe someone has died from an asbestos-related disease.

While the inquest will not apportion blame, the evidence gathered can be helpful in establishing fault (or ‘liability’) if you wish to make a compensation claim.

Inquests can be daunting to bereaved families dealing with the loss of a loved one.  Our team of specialist inquest solicitors and lawyers, who have extensive experience of representing families affected by asbestos disease, can advise and help you throughout the inquest process.
