What is a Coronial Inquest?
A coronial inquest is an investigation into the cause of someone’s death, or a fire.
The Coroner’s findings may have legal ramifications, as well as public relations and other implications. There are numerous reasons why you may need a lawyer for this process, and although it may not always be necessary for a lawyer to attend an inquest with you, it is always valuable to gain legal advice for a coronial inquest.
You may need legal help to manage the impact of the Coroner’s findings, and our team can provide you with strategic advice to do so.
