Casualty Injury

Who are we?

DAC Beachcroft’s specialist Casualty Injury team provides nationwide coverage for your personal injury claims across England, Wales and Scotland, the team consisting of lawyers specialised in handling employers liability and public liability claims. We provide you with a service for volume claims through to the most complex, high value and sensitive cases.

Our specialists regularly advise clients on their duties, managing risk, investigating incidents and defending claims.

We are supported by our renowned national health and safety, motor prosecutions and counter-fraud teams who can provide support and specialist input as required.

In addition, our specialist industrial disease team’s fee earners advise and represent clients in relation to asbestos, mesothelioma, vibration, CTS, dermatitis, asthma and noise induced hearing loss claims. We will provide you with national coverage and help you with any problem, whether a fast track manual handing claim or a catastrophic injury requiring immediate assistance. Our partners and teams are recognised in all the major legal Directories.

How can we help you?

We deal with claims by balancing the need for a robust approach with the inevitable commercial issues. We are always sensitive to the preferences of our clients. Our constant watchword is agreeing a strategy and driving the claim forward to resolve it as efficiently as possible - whether it is fighting claims to send a robust message, or settling cases where merited.

In claims involving a number of parties, for example contractors and subcontractors working together on construction projects, we are adept at disentangling complex relationships to assess where liability should lie.

We work in partnership with Insureds and their Insurers. We ensure you are informed not just of the latest changes to the law, but more importantly, we use our in depth knowledge of culture and processes in your sector to suggest the practical steps necessary to minimise claims exposure as you adjust to such changes.
