If someone has died of anything other than “natural causes”, the Coroner will hold an inquest into death to find out what circumstances led to and caused the death. Most family members will want to be present when this happens. However, we realise this can be a considerable source of stress at what is already an extremely difficult time.
An inquest is a factual enquiry into the circumstances surrounding a death and takes place in the Coroner’s Court. The Coroner’s role is not to attribute blame but the hearing can often be the best chance for a family to ask questions.
We have extensive experience representing families and individuals at inquests who are looking for answers. We will be there throughout the process to provide you with the support you need, whilst making the right enquiries to find out how your loved one died.
