You may perform a partial fraction decomposition of the denominator in
the variable x=Sqrt[s]. Then, you get a linear combination of
functions   s/(Sqrt[s]-A), a * 1/(Sqrt[s]-A) and something similar for
the other zeros B,C of  b x^3 + c x + d ==0.

The inverse LaplaceTransform of the simple terms are

InvLap[1/(Sqrt[s]-A),s,t] = f[t] = 1/Sqrt[Pi t]  A e^(A^2 t) Erfc[A

InvLap[s/(Sqrt[s]-A),s,t]  = -d/dt f[t]

Hope it helps
