A coroner's inquest will be held when a death has occurred in circumstances which are unexplained, violent or unnatural. The duty of the coroner is to establish how the person died but does not extend to determining who has been to blame – responsibility for carrying out this task is held by the criminal or civil courts.
If a coroner's inquest takes place following a fatality within your workplace, Wilford Smith’s Regulatory and Compliance Solicitors can provide expert legal representation to ensure that your position is protected. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling inquest representation and will provide you with all the information and support you need, having requested all relevant disclosure prior to the hearing. Willard Smith's solicitors have an enviable reputation for advocacy and litigation skills, enabling them to effectively challenge any decisions made by the coroner.
