Charlotte Davies represents the families of two young people at inquests in Truro

Specialist inquest Counsel Charlotte Davies (2007) has represented the families of two young people at separate inquests at Truro Coroner's Court.

Specialist inquest Counsel Charlotte Davies (2007) has represented the families of two young people at separate inquests at Truro Coroner's Court. Both inquests presented challenges in managing what is understandably an extraordinarily difficult process for families of loved ones who have lost their lives in tragic circumstances. 

In April, Charlotte was instructed by the family of a young man who lost his life in a single-vehicle motorbike crash in Swanpool last year. The young man, aged 22, lost control of his motorbike and was killed having become unseated and colliding with a road sign. The evidence of the police forensic collision investigator was that gravel on the road may have been a contributory factor. The Assistant Coroner entered a conclusion of Road Traffic Collision.

This week, Charlotte represented the interests of the family of a 12-year-old boy, who died when he was hit by a pick-up truck whilst crossing the road in Pool. The inquest was heard by the Senior Coroner who entered a conclusion of Road Traffic Collision.

Charlotte has a busy specialist inquest practice having represented all types of Interested Persons, including at Article 2 and jury inquests. She regularly appears in high profile inquests, a number of which have involved Leading Counsel, and is often instructed by local authorities and the police. She has written a series of articles on inquests which can be found on our website and on LinkedIn.

If you have any questions about this matter or wish to instruct Charlotte, please contact her clerk Jamie Kyte on 01752 221551 or civilclerks@kbgchambers.co.uk
