Health & Safety prosecutions have risen dramatically over the last few years meaning more company directors, managers and employees of companies are prosecuted every year. Why? because they all have a duty to co-operate with their employers on Health & Safety matters.
Breaches of the Health & Safety Laws can be very serious and those convicted can face massive fines as well as imprisonment. We’ve acted in many cases where there have been serious injuries and, sadly, death in the workplace.
These cases are very troubling for companies and their directors, who face being charged and prosecuted, as those injured are often known or close to those under investigation.
If you’re facing an allegation of this type, you’ll need our team of experienced, supportive, empathetic solicitors to fight your case . They’ll then call on expert Barristers and Accident Scene Investigators who often provide an alternate view on the allegations put forward by the prosecution.
