The purpose of an inquest is to help establish how and why an individual’s death occurred.

An inquest can help provide families with some answers and a degree of closure, by providing an understanding of what happened. However, having to deal with this process alone at an already difficult time can be overwhelming.

Our specialist team at Fosters are here to help and guide you through the process.

How we can help

We believe that the family should be at the heart of the inquest process and we will work hard to ensure your voice is heard. We have helped many clients and understand that you may feel angry, confused or anxious. We are here to listen to you, discuss your concerns and provide you with clear and honest advice.

We will listen to you and work out what you want to achieve. We aim to deliver your objective in a way you understand, and in a way that offers value and can help you move forward.

Financial compensation

In the event that an inquest identifies potential failings by healthcare providers, emergency services or other government departments, we may be able to help you make a claim for compensation.

We understand that the priority for many families is to ensure that professionals learn from their mistakes, to make sure that the same thing doesn’t happen to anyone else. Whilst we understand that compensation may not be at the front of your mind, we do know that the death of a loved one can also have devastating financial implications for their family.

Fosters offer a free no obligation telephone consultation to assess if we can assist you. If we can, we will discuss the funding options once we have a full understanding of your needs.

There is tremendous empathy for clients.
