A number of factors must be proven in order for a company to be found guilty and the courts can impose unlimited fines while forcing the organisation to publically state its crime and punishment. The court can also demand that remedial action be taken in order to prevent similar deaths from occurring.
The first corporate manslaughter conviction was secured in February 2011 and the number of cases tried is likely to increase following what will be viewed as a test case. If your organisation is facing corporate manslaughter charges, or you are worried that it will, then it is important to ensure that you have a dedicated and professional team of solicitors to assist in what is still an emerging corner of the legal market.
Freeman & Co Solicitors can help secure the best possible verdict and ensure that any sentence received is fair. The courts may demand that you pay substantial fines, remedy the problems that led to the death, and they may also demand that the case and its details be made public. There is a lot at stake and it is important that you have the best legal team available.
