Fatal Accident Inquiries

A Fatal Accident Inquiry (FAI) is held following a death in the workplace or in cases which give rise to reasonable suspicion. These are usually held in the sheriff court, but may be held in other premises where appropriate. We publish summaries of some FAIs, particularly in cases where there is wider public interest. The summaries provide details of the case, the main findings of the inquiry and a link to the sheriff's full determination.
