Coroners inquest

Most deaths are registered with a doctor and no further investigations are necessary. 

There are however deaths that require an investigation by a Coroner and in rare cases(if a death was violent or unnatural or whilst the deceased was in police custody, in prison or detained under the Mental Health Act) a Coroner’s Inquest is necessary to establish the cause of death and explore the surrounding circumstances. 

An inquest is a non-adversarial fact finding inquiry ,into the death of an individual to determine the cause of death and to record a verdict on that death.

Possible conclusions include:

  • Unlawful killing(on the basis of gross negligence manslaughter)
  • Unlawful killing (by unlawful act)
  • Suicide
  • Accident
  • Contribution by neglect
  • Open verdict
  • Natural causes

Our Coroner Inquest solicitors act on behalf of individuals and businesses who have been notified that the Coroner considers them an interested party or those who wish to be an interested party to the inquest.  ABR can provide support and advice in preparing for the inquest and representation during the proceedings. Coroners Inquests are daunting and archaic proceedings, our expert solicitors can help you to understand the process and ensure that you are aware of what to expect at every stage.

Expert advice from a specialist Coroner’s Inquest solicitor can be vital especially as a verdict that is critical of your actions or omissions can result in civil or criminal proceedings being considered.

In some cases legal aid is available for these proceedings. It may be that you are covered by insurance. Please contact us to discuss various funding options.
