Our expert litigators are able to advise on all aspects of corporate manslaughter.
The offence of corporate manslaughter is committed by an organisation if the way in which its activities are managed or organised cause the death of a person and amounts to a gross breach of a relevant duty owed by the organisation to the deceased.
Organisation will owe a duty of care under the laws of negligence and can include duties owed to individuals in connection with the supply of goods and services by the organisation or the maintenance and construction of a building. The particular breach must fall far below what could have been reasonably expected of the organisation in the circumstances.
Corporate Manslaughter & Corporate Homicide Act 2007
The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 covers the offence of corporate manslaughter. Unlimited fines can be applied to organisations convicted of the crime, and the Court will obtain financial information about the organisation to ensure the fine has a real economic impact. The Court also has the power to order organisations to publish details of the conviction.
Our lawyers can assist, whether on an advisory basis or provide robust representation in court if required.
