Health & Safety

If there has been a workplace injury or fatality, or you have been accused of corporate manslaughter or gross negligence manslaughter, our solicitors will represent you and your business. Our 24/7 service means we can attend incidents at short notice.

Depending on the nature and severity of the incident, you may be facing investigation by either the police, or by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). We understand that this can be both disruptive to your business and extremely daunting for you personally.

In the event of a fatal incident in the workplace, we provide legal representation for people and businesses facing health and safety charges under the Corporate Homicide Act 2007, which could involve separate health and safety offences for individual directors, board members and individuals within the business.

If there is a health and safety incident and you find yourself facing investigation, do not delay in contacting a member of our team by calling 0800 652 5559 or by filling in our online enquiry form. If your matter is urgent, call our 24-hour legal helpline on 0800 804 8186.
