Selected Cases

  • Re: TS (2022): Represented a private healthcare company which provided healthcare services in a prison in a 2-week Article 2 jury inquest following the death of a prisoner from HIV/AIDs-related complications. No criticisms were made of the company.
  • Re: CR (2022): Represented family in a 4-day inquest concerning the death of a young man with schizophrenia by suicide. The Coroner concluded that the clinician should have offered CR a trial of the anti-psychotic clozapine and that the failure to do so contributed to the death.
  • Re: AS (2022): Represented family in a 2-day inquest concerning the sudden death of a man following surgery for bowel cancer. The clinicians presumed the death had a cardiac cause but the post-mortem concluded it was caused by peritonitis. Following submissions from the family, the Coroner instructed a colorectal expert who identified a number of clinical failings and the Coroner concluded that the death could have been avoided. The claim is ongoing.
  • Re: W (2021): Represented family in a 7-day Article 2 jury inquest concerning significant clinical failings in treatment of a detained man with a spinal injury which concluded with a finding of neglect. Kiran also acted in the claim after the inquest and secured a settlement for the family.
  • Re: GS (2021): Represented family in a 1-week Article 2 jury inquest concerning the death of an informal patient whilst on home leave from a mental health hospital. The jury made criticisms of Social Services in their conclusion. The Trust made admissions of failures in care prior to the inquest.
  • Re: ER (2021): Represented family in an inquest into a neonatal death following induction. The Coroner concluded that the mother should have been offered a C-section earlier in the pregnancy and that she would have had a C-section and the death would have been avoided.
