Stage 4: What can be done by others after an accident?
Occasionally, the actions of parties that cause an accident can lead to criminal prosecution.
Whilst the decision to prosecute is a matter for the police and government prosecutors, the inquest may lead to a conclusion of unlawful killing, which can influence the decision to prosecute.
The inquest can therefore be a key step to ensuring that responsible parties are prosecuted.
