There are few things as traumatic as the sudden death of a loved one. When that death ocurs as a result of misconduct or negligence by a public body, the bereaved are faced with another powerful emotion - an overwhelming desire to discover the truth as to how and why their loved one died.
The practitioner called on to represent grieving families and friends is faced with a real responsibility - but, until now, no specialist text has been available to guide them through the complex process that lies ahead.
This book examines the practice and procedure of the coroner's court from the standpoint of a practitioner acting for the bereaved. But, further, it lends a powerful voice to the debate for a more humane and effective inquest system, where the human rights of victims and their families are properly respected.
