Specialist inquest support lawyers

If a death is the result of a road traffic collision, sustained in the workplace or as part of a crime and the circumstances are unclear we know that it can be a confusing, traumatic and emotional time.

Inquests occur for a number of reasons but primarily exist to ascertain the truth of what happened. We understand that for families who have suffered the death of a loved one, finding out the truth is often their priority.

Multiple professionals and agencies, including the police and the HSE, may be involved in the investigation.

When you instruct us, our specialist team will represent your family’s interests during this distressing time.

We will liaise pro-actively with all the professionals who are investigating the incident and will represent your family in official proceedings at the Coroners’ Court. We will liaise with the coroner, keep you informed of timescales and outcomes and support you at any pre-inquest reviews as well as the inquest itself.

In addition, we collaborate with a range of specialist charities and trusted support organisations. You can view these partnerships here.

Peace of mind

If you have experienced the death of a loved one you may also experience the loss of financial support. We will seek to secure early funding in the immediate aftermath to support you during this time.

We provide comprehensive support to families at a time when you need an experienced lawyer. Ultimately, we will seek to obtain the answers you want about what happened.

Trust and confidence in an investigation process is essential for families as they struggle in the aftermath of catastrophic injury or fatality.

Our ‘family first’ approach is reflected in the victim-oriented, empathetic approach used by modern 21st century emergency services and statutory agencies, so you can be sure you are in safe hands with our specialist inquest support lawyers at HCC.
