Eamonn has a keen interest in inquests and coronial law. Eamonn has appeared on behalf of families and other interested parties in cases concerning fatal motor accidents and clinical negligence. He appears at Pre-Inquest Reviews as well as the substantive inquests. Eamonn also has experience of drafting written submissions for consideration by a coroner concerning the scope of an inquest and the oral evidence required.
Recent inquests at which Eamonn has represented an interested party include:
The death of a child hit by a bus whilst crossing the road,
The death of woman in hospital who had choked on a denture palate,
The death of a patient in a hospital toilet. The deceased had been admitted to hospital for concerns over a potential DVT and was found dead 2 days after he went missing from the ward,
The death of a patient following removal of a peritoneal drain as part of cirrhosis treatment,
The death of a patient following spontaneous bleeds at the site of a thigh graft used for haemodialysis.
Eamonn takes pride in his ability to balance the need for a calm and sensitive client-focussed approach with the need to be robust where appropriate.
