Emily was instructed on a pro bono basis by Will Cornwell and Gurj Sidhu at Slater and Gordon solicitors, also acting pro bono, via a referral by the charity Road Peace. They represented the parents of a 24 year old man who died in a road traffic collision between him and a van on the A12 in East London on New Year’s Day in 2019.
The inquest was held at Poplar Coroner’s Court and Senior Coroner Mary Hassell reached a conclusion of road traffic collision. She also decided, after hearing submissions from counsel, to make a Preventing Future Deaths report in relation to pedestrian safety.
