Coroner's inquests

Our team has experience of attending Coroner’s inquests, mainly in connection with motor cases.   Inquests provide a useful opportunity to establish facts and gather evidence relevant to civil liability.  They also enable us to identify lines of enquiry being pursued by others and to prevent action which may prejudice our clients’ cases.

The impact of European legislation and the Human Rights Act has resulted in an increase in the length and complexity of many inquests. Good representation is often essential.
