Fatal Injury Claims and Inquest Representation

When a loved one has died as a result of receiving negligent or inappropriate medical treatment it is vital that you get professional legal advice from lawyers that can help you through this distressing time.  Our expert team will guide you through the legal process of bringing a claim with professionalism and sensitivity. 

Am I eligible for a claim?

If you are a close family member of the deceased person and you feel that the care that they received in hospital has led to their death, get in touch with us as you may have a claim. Examples of claims that have resulted in compensation claims include:

  • Inadequate care by ambulance or A&E services
  • Death during surgery, including anaesthetic error
  • Delayed or missed diagnosis of cancer, or other fatal illness
  • Delayed or missed diagnosis of infection leading to sepsis
  • Death resulting from hospital acquired infection
  • Inadequate care of the elderly
  • Newborn deaths
  • Failings in the mental health service

Inquest Representation

Inquests can be a daunting prospect for a family and the inquest process following the death of a family member can be upsetting and difficult to understand. We are keen to ensure that the circumstances leading to your loved one’s death are fully investigated to ensure you receive the answers you need and that the same mistakes should not reoccur.
