Inquest process and Care Home claims

14 April 2022

In episode 7 of the Shoosmiths serious injury podcast, Shoosmiths colleagues Sarah Cunliffe and Sharon Banga meet with Ropewalk Chambers barrister, Gareth McAloon to discuss the inquest process and how this operates in cases involving Personal Injury claims in a care home setting.

The episode hopes to provide an introduction to the inquest process which we will build upon in future episodes.

This episode covers:

  • Inquests and when they arise.
  • Discussion around specific Shoosmiths Serious Injury case examples.
  • Benefits of the inquest process in civil litigation including useful information for families entering into the inquest process.
  • The evidence gathered and preparation needed for the inquest and an overview as to the process undertaken during an inquest.
