Fatal Accident Inquiries Glasgow

A Fatal Accident Inquiry is a hearing held at court in order to inquire into the circumstances of a death. These normally take place in the Sheriff Court.

If a death occurs in the workplace or while that person is being held in legal custody (e.g. in a police station or a prison) a Fatal Accident Inquiry will be held. If a death occurs in other circumstances, an FAI will only be held if it is deemed to be in the public interest to do so.

The purpose of the inquiry is to establish the circumstances of the death and to consider what steps (if any) might be taken to prevent other deaths in similar circumstances.

We are experienced in representing individuals at Fatal Accident Inquiries. If the police are investigating a death within your workplace, you should contact us at the earliest opportunity for advice, not least because a criminal prosecution may also be under consideration. Equally, if you have been involved in a death in custody, or a close family member has died in such circumstances and you have received notification that a Fatal Accident Inquiry is to be held, we will be able to provide advice and representation should you wish to participate in the proceedings.
