An Inquest is a legal investigation conducted by a Coroner to establish the circumstances surrounding a person’s death. Inquests are not held every time some one dies but where a death has taken place in custody, was sudden, violent or unnatural or where the cause of death is uncertain.
For the relatives of someone who has died, dealing with the inquest can be stressful at an extremely difficult time. Hodge Jones & Allen has a long-standing and proud record of representing bereaved families’ interests throughout the inquest process. We have supported families through some of the most sensitive and high profile inquests, fighting to have their questions answered and concerns addressed.
Our experienced lawyers work to obtain disclosure of information and documents and capture evidence to make sure that the Inquest process is as thorough as possible.
At the heart of what we do is ensuring that our client’s understand the Inquest process and the evidence heard so that they come away from the process knowing what happened to their loved one.
If you have suffered the loss of a loved one, we can steer you through the Coroner’s Inquest with empathy and expertise, helping you participate to the extent you wish.
