Health And Safety Representation
C. Nicholls solicitors have an experienced team of lawyer/advocates specialising
in Criminal Work and Health and Safety Law in all courts. We have represented
those charged with poor gas fitting to slipping and tripping accidents and
Corporate Manslaughter by Gross Negligence.
The Health and Safety Legislation affects all traders, companies and employees
in a variety of ways. Criminal investigations and prosecutions can be brought
against sole traders and company directors as well as companies themselves.
The outcomes can range from a warning through to fines which can be very large
in extreme cases and in serious cases imprisonment may follow.
Consider if you could be affected by adverse publicity in any of these
Well before any incident may occur but especially immediately afterwards early
advice and representation may provide you with a Defence at Law.
Don't incriminate yourself!! Seek advice.
We will be there for you when facing an interview under caution with the police
or the Health and Safety Executive.
For matters that are contested we carry out thorough trial preparation with
relevant experts on behalf of the defence.
We also offer advice on Relevant Mitigation and Sentencing Guidelines if a guilty
plea is anticipated.
