Expert Witness


We have over 30 years’ experience in
accident investigation

We aim to help you and the courts to understand how and why an accident has happened.  Our evidence compares how parties’ actions compare with the knowledge and standards that applied at the time. We can draw on our experience as HSE inspectors including acting as prosecutors in criminal cases.

Our experience as accident investigators and expert witnesses covers occupational and sport and leisure sectors including:

  • Machinery accidents (PUWER and related legislation and guidance)
  • Construction (CDM and workplace practice)
  • Sports and leisure accidents (including professional sports and parachuting)
  • Military accidents
  • Falls from height
  • Slips, trips and falls

We are instructed as experts in civil and criminal cases by solicitors acting on behalf of Claimants and Defendants.

Our experts are active in their fields and also advise employers on matters of health and safety and assist with employers’ and other duty holders accident investigations.
