One of the key tasks of a lawyer under Art. 119 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine is the maximum reduction or complete avoidance of negative consequences for the accused. The lawyer must show that the death was not due to the fault of the client, but due to unforeseen circumstances for which he is not responsible.
- Evidence and peer review. Lawyer under Art. 119 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine must skillfully work with evidence, in particular, ensure a competent expert assessment. It is important to determine whether safety standards were violated, whether the activity was carried out in accordance with regulations, and whether the accused complied with all norms and rules.
