The death of a loved one is devastating, but we can help you get answers about what happened during their medical treatment that caused their death, find out why it happened and seek compensation to ease financial burdens.
A coroner must hold an Inquest if the cause of death is still unknown. Sometimes when deaths occur in unusual or unclear circumstances, an Inquest will be held to establish the facts around the death. Our team can represent you at Inquests, to help guide you through proceedings and to make sure your voice is heard.
If the person who died has left a Will, the Executor will have the right to pursue a claim on behalf of the deceased’s estate. It may be necessary to obtain a Grant of Probate if the claim progresses
If no Will has been made, and the deceased died intestate, Letters of Administration will need to be obtained and a claim can be advanced by the person named in those Letters of Administration.
We will provide advice on when to obtain either a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration and whether these are necessary in your case, and we can also help with the legal work involved.
A claim following the death of a loved one has died as a result of medical negligence can be pursued by a ‘dependent’ of the person who died. Dependents can include the following:
In addition, the executors can bring a claim on behalf of the deceased’s Estate for injury or losses incurred by the deceased prior to death, and for any expenses falling upon the Estate which arise from the death.
We can accept fatal medical negligence cases on a No Win No Fee basis so you won’t have to worry about paying legal costs until after your claim has finished, and even then, only if your claim is successful.
