An Inquest is a public hearing in which a Coroner seeks to establish when, where and how a death occurred. An Inquest is usually held following a death in which the cause is unclear, or a death that occurred whilst a person was in the care of the state. This can involve deaths in prison, police custody or in a hospital (where the care given is called under question).
The bereaved family can attend the inquest of the deceased as an Interested Person and Farleys can provide specialist representation in this regard. We will ensure that you are represented by experienced advocates and help you to obtain as much out of the inquest as possible. We will assist you from the initial investigation into the death, through to any inquest heard before a coroner.
