Why it is important to have representation at the hearing?
Representation by lawyers at a hearing might raise issues or might uncover evidence which is valuable to the family.
This might simply help the family understand what has happened and might help in a later compensation claim. The family may be able to influence the question that the coroner asks or the evidence that he calls for. This is where legal representation can be very helpful, as we can guide and help you focus on the right questions to ask.
It is important for families to understand what caused the death and, where possible, to call those responsible to account. We will guide you through the Inquest process, by representing you when you need it and by claiming compensation where we can - money is no answer to sudden bereavement but neither is it acceptable for families to suffer the double injustice of financial loss when that can be avoided.
