Prison Death Solicitors
Regrettably, a death in prison often brings additional difficulties, including families being told very little about the circumstances involved. It tends to be a prison minister (unfamiliar to you) who will inform you of a passing. This person has little to no access to the actual details and information you’ll likely wish to hear.
As dedicated prison death solicitors we will contact all individuals concerned within the prison service, the actual prison, the Probation Ombudsman and the coroner. Meetings and discussions will occur, allowing us to obtain as much information as possible. In addition we will assess and digest any legal documentation issued by the prison alongside a breakdown of the post-mortem report and any medical evidence. Finally, we will advise accordingly should you require any independent experts to assist during the inquest.
