Patrick Cassidy Represents Family at Inquest into the Unexpected Death of Young Man at Stockport Care Home

by Kenworthy's Chambers 10/08/2018

Patrick Cassidy, instructed by Sleigh, Son & Booth, represented the family of a 23-year old boy who died suddenly at the Stockport Care Home he resided in. The deceased suffered from Cerebral Palsy, learning difficulties, Epilepsy and Dysphagia and was monitored by equipment 24 hours a day and checked on hourly by staff due to suffering from seizures.

Patrick attended an inquest hearing at Stockport Coroner's Court where the court heard the police are actively investigating the death of the resident and are considering gross negligence manslaughter and Care Home neglect. The coroner adjourned the inquest for a further hearing later this year.
