Inquests & Public Inquiries

David has appeared at a number of inquests, and has particular experience of appearing at inquests concerning deaths that involve issues relating to product liability and allegedly deficient medical care and treatment. He is experienced at appearing at inquests both with, and without, a jury. He has considerable experience of dealing with the question of whether Article 2 of the ECHR is engaged, and making appropriate submissions both in writing and orally. In addition, he is experienced at dealing with the parameters of the different conclusions open to the Coroner, including the applicable standards of proof, and in particular, has a wealth of experience in addressing the circumstances in which it is appropriate to add a rider that a death was contributed to by neglect.
