Coroners Court

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, when and where they died, how they died and the medical cause of death.

The coroner may decide to hold an inquest and make recommendations to prevent similar deaths.
