 The unexpected death of a loved one is never easy. It is often especially painful when it takes place while the deceased was in custody or hospital.

Bindmans provides a compassionate and committed service to bereaved families and friends who seek to know why their loved one died and whether the death could have been prevented. When someone dies unexpectedly, there will often be an inquest by a coroner into the circumstances surrounding the death. Sometimes it is also necessary to establish an independent public inquiry to investigate an issue of widespread importance.
