Because inquests are non-adversarial, those involved are often under-prepared. As the evidence obtained in inquests can lead to significant claims for damages, it is important for practitioners to have the best advice and information to hand.

This unique guide to coroners' courts provides a clear statement of the law. Above all, it is a practical guide to procedure, from a post-mortem to the opening of an inquest through to appeals in the High Court.

  • Contains invaluable forensic and medical information on establishing causes of death, presented in clear and understandable terms
  • Includes numerous checklists of vital questions to be asked of witnesses such as police officers, forensic medical examiners and doctors, where death has occurred in custody, in hospital and due to drugs.
