Employers’ Liability

Our personal injury practitioners are renowned for their work in the field of employers’ liability and have extensive experience in advising in all types of accidents at work.

Causation can be a particular feature of work accident claims and our willingness to be involved at an early, pre-litigation stage of the claim means we can give advice on investigation and preservation of evidence and so help our clients build or defend a claim from the start.  The analysis of risk assessments and training is another valuable feature of our work.

Advice will often be required on broader issues, such as an analysis of sub-contracts, assessment of third party claims and advice on indemnities.  Whether or not the injured person is an employee or whether the claim is a public liability claim can often be an important sub-issue. We also advise on related issues concerning employers’ liability claims, such as the implications of the Disability Discrimination Act.

Our areas of work include:

  • Asbestosis/Mesothelioma
  • Causation
  • Long tail claims
  • Manual handling
  • Multi-party claims
  • Occupational disease
  • Repetitive strain disorders
  • Respiratory disorder
  • Vibration white finger
  • Work equipment claims
