Whilst corporate manslaughter prosecutions have been few and far between, they are on the increase and have a serious and devastating impact on all involved.
The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act came into force in 2008 and means that businesses and organisations can be found guilty of causing an employees death as a result of breaches of duty of care or a management failure. Corporate manslaughter will apply where the death of an employee is found to the fault of the business or organisation, rather than an individual.
Our experience of dealing with interviews under caution, Coroner's Courts Inquests and Crown Court cases involving fatalities means that, in the event of such serious investigations occurring, you will receive quality advice with all the benefits afforded by continuity of such representation.
