We help with incidents large and small, whether a person is injured or not.

Serious incidents and Fatalities - With you from the start

After a serious incident the HSE will investigate your business and individuals within it.  Inspectors will normally interview witnesses, seize documents, require information and request formal interviews under caution. They may also issue Improvement or Prohibition Notices.  Corporate manslaughter may be under consideration. Police can take the lead in the investigation and may choose to interview key managers/directors under caution - on day one.

Caught up in the trauma of the incident, businesses may not realise the legal process of prosecution has already begun. However getting legal help and making the right decisions in the early stages can make all the difference to the final outcome. Here are some that we assist with:

We believe the right advice from the start pays dividends.
