Inquests: Notable case

Lt. Joshua Woodhouse (2012)

Selva Ramasamy represented the family of Lt. Joshua Woodhouse at the Inquest into his death. Lt Woodhouse died in a fall from height while serving aboard HMS Ocean, a Royal Navy helicopter carrier, in port in the USA.

The Jury returned a narrative verdict identifying a culture of non compliance with safety measures on board. The Coroner criticised the Navy for a culture of cutting corner regarding safety on its warships.
