Health & safety

Accidents will happen, no matter how well you run your business, and when they do, it is important to seek legal advice without delay.

If you are involved in a Health & Safety (HSE) investigation, call 023 8071 8037 now or request a callback and our expert solicitors will contact you as soon as possible.

If a serious accident or fatality occurs, you will be facing investigation and possible prosecution by the Health & Safety Inspectorate, and potentially the Police, for a range of offences possibly including manslaughter. You and your individual directors and managers could be personally liable. Similarly, the consequences of an environmental incident such as polluting a waterway or contaminating land may also lead to prosecution.

When something like this happens, you will be facing a complex and fast-moving situation. You might not have the time or space to think things through before having to answer questions and make statements.

It is imperative therefore that you get expert legal advice immediately on discovering the incident. This will help clarify your rights and responsibilities, and ensure you avoid saying or doing anything that might harm your position.

Our health and safety solicitors specialise in this area of law and have many years of practical experience dealing with serious health and safety prosecutions. As soon as you contact us, we’ll work quickly to establish the facts and protect your interests. We’ll help you regain a sense of clarity and control, guiding you through the process and providing you with the advice and support you need every step of the way. You can rest assured that our lawyers are recognised as leaders in this area of expertise – and that we will do everything we can to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your business.
