Legal advice for families following a death in custody. Our civil liberties solicitors offer advice and representation to help you get compensation for the death of a loved one in prison, police custody, immigration detention or other detention setting, or following contact with the police.
When someone suffers a violent, unnatural or sudden death where the cause is unknown, the bereaved family often feel overwhelmed. They will want to get as much information as possible about the circumstances surrounding it so they can find some closure. We will assist and support you both in relation to the inquest and any civil proceedings that follow where failings have been identified.
We’ll be with you every step of the way in your drive to find answers regarding the death of a loved one. We will hold the authorities to account for any failings which contributed to the death.
