Kent Carty’s specialist teams of medical negligence and personal injury solicitors often assist bereaved families after the tragic or untimely death of a loved one.
We have represented families at inquests following the death of a loved one arising from:
- Medical accidents in hospitals
- Accidents at work
- Road traffic accidents
- Doctor/consultant negligence
Part of the legal process we follow to assist bereaved families is to explore the circumstances and potential contributing issues leading to the death of the loved one. The constraints of the inquest process mean that we are unable to make allegations of liability, but we are able to obtain crucial information for the family.
Families often worry about the cost of legal representation at an inquest. If the death is proven to be caused by the wrongful actions of another party, it is possible, in many cases, to recover legal costs at an inquest in a civil case after the inquest.
