When a loved one passes away suddenly and unexpectedly it can be an emotional and distressing time.
This can be made even worse when faced with the prospect of having to go through a coroner's inquest and deal with the consequences this may bear.
What is an Inquest?
An Inquest is a legal procedure where the circumstances and causes of someones death are unclear. The procedure tends to call on a Coroner to examine these circumstances and establish when & how and potentially why that person has passed away unexpectidly.
The Coroners results are then summarised to provide a verdict to an ongoing court hearing, including all the findings within their examination to help shed light on the unexplained situation.
