Losing a loved one is always difficult, but it can be even harder to come to terms with a loss when the death was unexpected, unexplained or both.

The purpose of an inquest is to establish how and why an individual's death occurred. An inquest can help to provide families with some answers and a degree of closure by providing an understanding of what happened and why. 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 Fosters 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.

Financial Compensation

In the event that an inquest identifies potential failings by healthcare providers, the police or other government department, 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 have devastating financial implications for their family.
