Keith Morton KC, instructed by Madeleine Abas, Senior Partner of Osborn Abas Hunt, has secured the acquittal of a major construction company following an 8 day trial before the District Judge (Magistrates’ Court) at Derby Magistrates Court. The case explored the relationship between concurrent duties on designers, principal contractors and contractors under the CDM Regulations, the significance of foreseeability in health and safety cases and the extent to which the prosecution may be permitted to broaden its case on exposure to risks in the course of the trial.
Two co-defendants pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing and will be sentenced in due course.
