The areas of work in which we have particular expertise, experience and excellence.
9 Gough Chambers has practitioners specialising in all areas of industrial disease and occupational illness claims. These claims are often complicated legally and frequently lack the quality of evidence available in other injury claims, particularly with the more historical and the post-death claims. We provide a practical and realistic approach to this litigation. We understand that a well presented claim is important if an early and satisfactory settlement is to be obtained. Our experience with experts, whose evidence is often crucial in such claims, enables us to ensure that the best evidence is available and also enables us to assess the likely strength of the expert evidence under challenge.
In addition to advising on the merits of a claim and its value, we have much experience in assisting in the identification of appropriate defendants and in resolving the insurance issues which arise in such claims.
For elderly and seriously ill clients a speedy resolution is often important and we will assist in fast-tracking appropriate claims.
Areas in which we regularly advise and represent clients include:
