Barrister: Emma Zeb
Area of Law: Inquests
Summary: Emma Zeb represented the mother of Ayaan Hussain at the inquest into his death at Bristol Coroner’s Court on 23 October 2015. Ayaan was 23 months old when he passed away on 11 December 2014 at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. He had been suffering from a malignant brain tumour which was undiagnosed prior to his collapse on 10 December 2014.  The inquest focussed on whether appropriate care and assessment was made in respect of Ayaan’s deteriorating condition at the Bristol Children’s Hospital.  The Coroner (Maria Voisin) found that there was a missed opportunity to have diagnosed Ayaan’s tumour.  Emma was instructed by Paula Hill of Metcalfes.
