The role of the coroner is greatly misunderstood, not least within the legal and medical professions. Yet inquests will often have great significance for those involved and can attract considerable media attention. Verdicts of 'neglect' and 'unlawful killing' are increasingly sought, particularly with changes brought about by Human Rights cases.
This new edition of Coroners' Courts offers a clear route map through the confusion and misconceptions surrounding the inquest and work of the coroner. Designed in a user-friendly way, with a comprehensive index enabling easy access to key subjects, the work provides analysis of all the major issues arising from the coroner's investigation of a death. The book includes analysis of developments such as recent cases on neglect; the definition of an unnatural death in the light of the Touche case; tissue retention; and guidance on identification of the deceased following the Marchioness Inquiry.
Written by a full-time coroner, this practical book provides an insight into the working of a coroner's court with explanations of the coroner's duties, the purpose of the inquest, the implications of the coroner's verdict, and how to give evidence at an inquest.
