This is a really interesting case our team have been involved in over recent months. Sarah and Sacha successfully assisted a family in their application to the High Court to quash an original inquest and order a fresh one.

As you will see there were a great deal of concerns about the way the original inquest was conducted. There were concerns about procedural irregularities and failures by the coroner to consider, what the family thought was relevant evidence.

Hopefully, this case will further highlight the importance of full and fearless inquests taking place when necessary and of the need to take heed of families when they are raising concerns about the circumstances of a death.
