Our People


Under the Coroners Act 2003, coroners are responsible for investigating reportable deaths that occur in Queensland.

The investigation determines the identity of the deceased person, how they died, and the place, date and medical cause of the death.

Inquests are not held for every death, however for certain deaths i.e. deaths in custody, an inquest is required. The focus is on determining what happened, not attributing blame, and making recommendations to prevent similar deaths in future.
