Asbestos Related Deaths
A post-mortem examination can provide new and unexpected medical information about the cause of death. That information may be relevant to any compensation claim.
If a claim has already begun or has been contemplated then it is essential that the Defendant (the person or company against who the claim is made) is informed of the death and is given the Coroner’s details as a matter of urgency.
If the Defendant is not given the opportunity to obtain and safeguard relevant medical information then the civil court might not allow any compensation claim to be made at all. This is especially true where lung cancer is involved.
