There are three main stages of a coronial inquest:
- Pre-inquest conference
- Coroner’s findings
During the pre-inquest conference, the parties participating and witnesses to be called in the inquest are identified. The location will be confirmed and an expected duration will be estimated. During the hearing, all items of information and evidence are gathered and presented and witnesses are called. These witnesses may be a family member, expert or have been present at the death. Once the hearing is complete, the coroner will complete their findings.
