Death in Prison
Death in prison can bring with it additional difficulties, as families are often told very little about the circumstances of the death, and are often informed by a stranger, usually a minister from the Prison, with little or no access to information.
We will further contact the individuals concerned, that being the Prison Service, the Prison and Probation Ombudsman and the Coroner to obtain as much information as possible.
Legal documentation issued by the prison, can be difficult to understand, alongside a breakdown of the post-mortem report and any medical evidence. We will also advise as to whether or not you will need any independent experts to assist during the inquest.
