If you do not feel able to meet the investigators face to face, you can either keep the communication strictly to emails and letters, or you can refuse to meet them, especially if you're planning to seek legal representation.

It is not unusual for families to reject meetings with trust investigators, as it is difficult to sometimes face representatives from the trust, who you might be holding responsible for your loved ones death.

You should not feel under any obligation to meet them, but please bear in mind that sometimes these investigation meetings can be helpful as they can give us some information about the circumstances, and their initial findings, which you may not be able to get otherwise.
