Inquests are held by a Coroner in certain circumstances, for example when a death has happened suddenly and it is unexplained. It is the Coroner’s duty to find out who died, when, where and in what circumstances.
If you have lost a family member or someone close to you dies in circumstances you don’t understand, you may be entitled to ask questions at the inquest about the death and may be able to get legal representation to have those questions asked.
If there is a finding that a death could have been avoided, a Coroner – where appropriate – can make a recommendation that could prevent a similar death in the future.
