Jury acquittal in long running fatal accident prosecution

Simon Antrobus KC and Sandesh Singh have successfully secured the unanimous jury acquittal of a leading engineering inspection business, following a 3-week criminal trial at Reading Crown Court.

The company provides statutory inspection support services to industry, and was prosecuted by the HSE following the death of an employee, falling from height whilst surveying a customer’s complex 3-story structure in October 2016.

The customer company, a car manufacturer, was a co-defendant in the case and was convicted of both charges under s2 and s3 Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 that it faced.

Simon and Sandesh were instructed by Kevin Bridges and Laura White at Pinsent Masons LLP.
