In the event a person dies as a result of an accident or personal injury, an Inquest will usually be held and is conducted in the Coroner’s Court.
Any Police or Health & Safety Executive investigation or prosecution may impact on the timing of the Inquest.
The family has the right to be represented at the Inquest
The power of the Coroner to consider the issue of fault is limited. However the Inquest can provide some answers and clarify the facts.
