Forensic Drug Sampling
Forensic Drug Sampling Compensation Claims
National news reports in February 2017 detailed allegations of manipulation of forensic results at Randox Testing Services (RTS) – a company used by police forces across the UK. Samples re-tested have been found to be clear, leading to convictions being quashed.
Randox Testing Services holds contracts with nearly all UK police forces to provide toxicology test results which detected the presence of drugs in hair, blood, and urine. Some of these test results were relied upon to convict people of criminal offences. A large proportion of the cases were for Road Traffic Act offences such as driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Making a Randox Claim
If you think that Randox produced inaccurate forensic evidence in your cases and was used to secure your conviction, these are the steps to take. You should ask for you your file to be reviewed to find out if Randox carried out the testing.
Our specialist in criminal law will be able to assist with the process and dealing with your appeal. If you are successful, our human rights team will help you to claim compensation on a “no win no fee” basis.
