If a patient dies in Hospital or following medical treatment, it is usually reported to the Coroner.
There may be a full inquest hearing and it is preferable to have an experienced lawyer representing the bereaved family during this emotional time.
The purpose of an inquest is to establish the facts which lead to the death of the patient. It is not permitted to ask questions that would establish that a medical practitioner was liable for the death, however, having trained legal representation can lead to facts being elicited that assist a subsequent clinical negligence claim.
