I have 20 years’ post-qualification experience of industrial injury work. My particular interests are asbestos, occupational cancers, NIHL and HAVS, but I have extensive experience in most long and short tail conditions.
I have acted for a number of large insurers and self-insured PLCs. My instructions include various cancer cases involving nasal and bladder cancers, lung cancer from both asbestos and chemical exposures and cases of kidney failure from silica exposure. I have dealt with numerous asbestos-related injury claims including several mesothelioma cases with issues over policy coverage. I have successfully defended many RSI claims including claims by airport baggage handlers, automotive parts workers and secretarial staff.
I regularly present training sessions to both insurers and solicitors and am involved in the consultation processes in respect of disease and asbestos claims handling with the judiciary and the ABI.
