Inquests into Death by Suicide


If someone is suspected to have committed suicide, a coroner’s inquest will be requested by the police once the death has been reported. After an investigation has deduced it was a suspected suicide, the corner will work to decide whether that was indeed the case, holding a public hearing (sometimes with the support of a jury) to decide, beyond reasonable doubt, that it was suicide.


Who can help me with an inquest?


If you have lost someone due to suspected suicide, you are entitled to legal representation during the process of the inquest.


In that case that the person in question had known mental health issues, the case could be a clinical negligence matter. Should you have reason to believe this is the case, contact our clinical negligence solicitors who can help prepare and represent you throughout the process.


If you have reason to believe that the suspected suicide was not in fact suicide, then the inquest should reveal that. If the coroner finds the suspected suicide to be an unlawful killing, the matter will become a criminal investigation. Our solicitors will support you throughout the investigation.
