We offer a range of funding options to clients who are seeking legal advice in relation to and representation in relation to an Inquest.
In extremely limited circumstances, Legal Aid is available for the provision of legal advice and representation at an Inquest.
We can negotiate flexible fixed fee arrangements which can be paid in instalments for work associated with preparation for an Inquest. Such arrangements can be agreed on a case by case basis.
If a death has been caused or contributed to by negligence or a violation of the deceased’s human rights, and a successful civil claim arises from the death, it has now been accepted by the court that reasonable legal costs associated with preparation for and representation at an Inquest should be recoverable from the defendant to such a claim.
There are a range of funding options available for funding investigations into civil claims at Leigh Day, including Conditional Fee Agreement (“No win no fee”) or funding through Legal Expense Insurance.
If you wish to instruct solicitors at Leigh Day to assist you with an Inquest, different options for funding will be discussed with you in detail.
If you would like to speak to a solicitor about any of the issues described above please contact us on 020 7650 1200 and ask to speak to a member of our inquest team.
