An inquest is an investigation into a death which is unexpected, for example when the cause of death is unknown, violent or unnatural. Inquests can be an extremely upsetting process for the families and friends of the deceased to go through, and often the outcome can be quite disappointing. This is because the purpose of an inquest is a fact-finding exercise and is not to apportion blame.

The coroner is tasked with answering four particular questions:

  1. Who the deceased was;
  2. When the deceased passed away;
  3. Where the deceased passed away;
  4. And usually most importantly, how the deceased came about their death.

Catherine is our inquest specialist and is currently supporting a number of families through this very difficult process.
