Home | Health | Coronial


Our health law team focussing on coronial investigations has been involved in complex and high profile coronial hearings. We meticulously investigate the circumstances surrounding a death and provide unwavering guidance to health practitioners throughout the process, which can span two to three years.

We ensure our clients are kept informed and offer strategic advice while gathering pertinent information, opinion and statements. Our experienced lawyers proactively inform health practitioners about the likely outcomes and potential consequences flowing from a coronial investigation – empowering clients to make informed decisions about crucial issues such as claims for privilege of documents, self-incrimination, and potential referral to professional health councils or statutory authorities managing complaints.

Our experienced team provides insightful advice on the likely finding and recommends pre-emptive changes to avoid an unfavourable outcome. The personalise approach of our lawyers ensures healthcare practitioners are fully supported and informed throughout the entire process.
