Overview

The employers liability team is a core part of the personal injury team. We act on behalf of both employees and employers across the full spectrum of work-related claims, including: stress, dermatitis, asbestos-related conditions, construction accidents, manual handling, repetitive strain injury, assaults at work, defective work equipment, trips, slips and falls. We have huge experience and unrivalled expertise in this area, with a leading team of silks and juniors who are able to deal with all types of cases, from minor accidents at work to complex catastrophic injuries.

We pride ourselves on offering the highest standards of advocacy and advisory services, at all times. Members are extremely familiar with the regulatory framework which applies in this field, and frequently provide lectures and training to other legal professionals. We are also responsible for a multiple publications including the APIL Guide to Occupational Illness Claims, Manual Handling Claims, Work Equipment Claims, and Work Accidents at Sea, 9 Gough Chambers being the only set of Chambers who have published their own series of books on these topics.

Examples of noinlinetable cases include:

  • Zagdanski v City Scrap Ltd (2015) (the claimant, who was represented by Andrew Ritchie QC, suffered a traumatic amputation to his right arm at work – quantum was settled for £1.75M, including damages for a revolutionary new bionic arm).
  • Corr v IBC Vehicles Ltd [2008] House of Lords EWHL 13 (whether employer liable for suicide of employee who had been involved in a serious accident at work).
  • Allison v London Underground Ltd [2008] EWCA Civ 71 (duty to ensure adequate training for the use of work equipment).
