Richard Heller prosecutes fatal accident claim

11 April 2016

Richard Heller is currently appearing at Blackfriars Crown Court on behalf of the London Borough of Southwark, prosecuting a hairdressing chain and one of its directors in connection with a fatal accident at one of their salons. The accident occurred when their employed ‘handyman’ fell head-first to the floor from the top of a 17ft ladder that snapped, having been dangerously modified by the addition of an extension. Both defendants have pleaded not guilty.
