If you have lost a loved one suddenly, either under suspicious circumstances, in a road traffic accident or their death was due to unnatural causes or violence, a Coroner will need to oversee a post-mortem to establish what caused the death.

Sometimes an inquest may be necessary to investigate the circumstances surrounding a fatal accident and determine all of the details relating to the death.

We have put together a guide about coroners and inquests, and how these will develop following a fatal accident.
