Kindergarten inquest

We represented a kindergarten at a high-profile inquest into the death of a child, allegedly due to anaphylactic shock. The parents of the child, who had a severe nut allergy, believed that kindergarten staff had exposed the child to peanuts. However, our lawyers obtained medical evidence that the child’s death may have been due to a congenital heart condition. The coroner delivered an open finding and the flagged compensation claim by the parents did not eventuate.
