Tuckers Solicitors specialist Magistrates and Crown Court lawyers can provide legal advice and representation where there is an allegation of poisoning.
There are two types of offence, where a person:
- maliciously administered or caused to be administered to or taken by any other person any poison or other destructive or noxious thing, so as thereby to endanger the life of such person, or so as thereby to inflict upon such person any grievous bodily harm;
- unlawfully and maliciously administered to or cause to be administered to or taken by any other person any poison or other destructive or noxious thing, with intent to injure, aggrieve, or annoy.
Both types of offences are serious although clearly the first type attracts more serious sentences.
These offences have a wide and varied scope. They include cases where a defendant may have acted negligently in administering medicine, preparing food or installing gas piping and as a result have caused serious harm to others. Other examples include carbon monoxide poisoning whilst staying in rented accommodation or in the workplace. Injuries to the victims can be substantial and long lasting. This is why Tuckers Solicitors should be the first choice for legal representation for anyone alleged to be involved in this type of case.
