Home / Services / Medical Negligence Compensation Claims / Inquests After Fatal Medical Negligence

Healthcare standards are generally very high but sometimes avoidable mistakes happen resulting in the tragic loss of life. If your loved one has died suddenly and unexpectedly in hospital, during or shortly after medical treatment, or while waiting for medical treatment, their death should be reported to the coroner.


The coroner is an independent government official who conducts inquests to look into the cause of death. A post-mortem may be arranged to find out exactly how your loved one died.


The inquest process can be complex and confusing, particularly at a time when you are grieving the sudden loss of your loved one. Our specialist inquest solicitors and lawyers are here to give you all the support you need. We can represent you throughout the inquest process, giving you clear, objective and expert advice from the outset.
