Government reforms to overhaul the coroners and inquests system have so far failed to address the fact that only 21 per cent of families who applied for funding help were successful.
Concerns have also been raised that many bereaved families may not even be aware that they have a right to legal representation when they attend an inquest, even though witnesses attending to explain the cause of death will have an insurance company’s paid legal team there to help.
APIL president Amanda Stevens has said that the Government’s ˜charter for bereaved people’ “ its latest move to update the system “ must make it clear that bereaved families can seek legal advice for an inquest.
