Insurance

Assault, harassment and bullying are areas of particular expertise. We have acted in claims arising out of schools, care homes, a secure children’s home and a private psychiatric hospital. We have advised on vicarious liability in relation to assaults by security staff in nightclubs and on policy coverage issues connected with sexual assaults in colleges.

At present we are defending a multi million pound claim for severe brain injury arising out of an alleged assault at a nightclub, on behalf of a security company and its insurers. We are also acting for claimants in a number of personal injury claims arising out of stress at work in prisons.

 

Aspen Insurance have instructed us to defend respiratory and other disease claims on behalf of a range of organisations, including local authorities.

 

We have defended numerous liability claims arising out of building sites in London on behalf of construction project policy lead insurers.  We were nominated solicitors on the policy for the Rugby Football Union’s south stand at Twickenham.

 

Brokers refer uninsured construction companies and others who are defending industrial deafness claims to us.
