Coronial inquests and investigations are held when a death occurs unexpectedly during or after medical treatment. Usually, this involves carrying out a detailed physical examination of the body, called an autopsy, to establish the cause of death. If the Coroner decides to investigate, information and statements about the death will be obtained. Sometimes a public hearing, called an Inquest, is held to establish the cause of death.

Maurice Blackburn’s experienced medical negligence lawyers assist and represent families at the Coroners Court. We can help with the coronial process by liaising with the Coroners Court on your behalf, preparing the case for Inquest and arranging for a barrister to represent you at the Inquest.

If you need assistance or representation at a Coroner’s Inquest contact Maurice Blackburn today to discuss how we can help. We have lawyers in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and throughout Australia.
