In practical terms, the death of a spouse or close relative can result in devastating financial consequences for the family. Clearly, any financial compensation can never redress the loss felt, but may achieve some much needed future security.
At Penningtons Manches we are very aware of the added emotional strain in these cases and the need for particular sensitivity.
Where an inquest is to be held, we can provide information on coronial law and arrange representation to raise legitimate questions and advise on the findings and any further action that may be appropriate.
Penningtons Manches' experienced team can advise in relation to a wide range of claims.
