Areas of Law / Inquests

An inquest is a legal procedure held by a Coroner to investigate deaths that are sudden and appear accidental or suspicious.

Losing a loved one is tragic enough, but when you are faced with the prospect of an inquest to gain an explanation into the circumstances of how they died, this can be a daunting and difficult exercise for anyone faced with such a situation.
