Inquests & Costs - Recovery, Core Principles & Key Case Law
Coroners have no power to award costs of legal advice or representation at inquests.
Where a successful civil claim follows, parties will attempt to recover the costs of the inquest as well as the costs of the civil proceedings from the losing party.
The starting point is section 51 of the Supreme Court Act 1981, which enables the court to award costs ‘of and incidental to’ civil proceedings.
This new live broadcast session will explain the core principles, discuss the key case law and consider some important practical tips.
