What we do

Inquests and Inquiries

What clients say..

The unexpected death of a loved one is never easy. It is often especially painful when it takes place while the deceased was in custody or hospital.

Bindmans provides a compassionate and committed service to bereaved families and friends who seek to know why their loved one died and whether it could have been prevented. When someone dies a violent or unnatural death or sudden death where the cause is unknown a Coroner will usually hold an inquest into the circumstances surrounding the death. Sometimes the court can order, or the relevant public body will agree to, an independent public inquiry to investigate the issues particularly if systemic failings or public interest issues arise.

We take on a broad range of cases, covering both inquests and inquiries.
