Coroners’ Inquests In Healthcare Deaths
We provide expert advice, support and representation to the families of people who die as a consequence of medical treatment and care. We assist families in the sensitive management of the legal affairs of the deceased following such a fatality.
Where medical intervention or omission has been implicated in a death, the Coroner’s function is to enquire into the cause of death and obtain certain specific information. Whilst the Coroner directs the enquiry, the Inquest can provide, to the family of the Deceased, a valuable opportunity to investigate the circumstances of the death and treatment leading up to it.
O’Reilly Stewart Healthcare lawyers appear regularly before the Coroners Court in Northern Ireland. We not only prepare the families of the deceased for the hearing of the Inquest, we also represent and advocate for them at hearing, providing clients with a personalised, professional and consistent service from initial instruction to final resolution.
