Jennie Thomas's Expertise

 

Jennie Thomas

Jennie specialises in high value complex employer and public liability claims and works for insurer clients including claims with large corporate Insureds.

She has over 20 years’ experience advising clients across a range of sectors including retail and leisure, construction, manufacturing and transport and logistics. She handles claims from their inception to resolution, providing both technical and practical advice together with carrying out thorough investigations.

Jennie regularly deals with fatal accidents, complex multi-party claims and represents clients at joint settlement meetings and inquests. She has a particular interest in litigation arising from accidents in the beautician industry including claims involving allergic reactions to products, injuries arising from minor cosmetic procedures, and hairdressing injuries including burns and microdermabrasion injuries. Jennie also advises in cases involving defective products and product liability claims.

Jennie provides regular training to insurer clients and their customers in relation to statutory regulations, case law and claims handling. She also regularly attends at a surgery for an insurer client advising upon a variety of issues including indemnity and liability together with providing strategic recommendations.  

Relevant experience includes:

  • Defending a manufacturing company in relation to a claim for personal injury arising from an allergic reaction to a product.
  • Representing an employer in a claim for personal injury following an employee falling down a concrete set of stairs sustaining multiple injuries. Jennie challenged the quantum claim pursued obtaining counter medical evidence and attended a joint settlement meeting resulting in a saving of over £500,000 from the pleaded claim.
  • Successfully arguing that a claim for personal injury pleaded over £200,000 should be dismissed on the basis that the limitation period had expired.
  • Representing a manufacturing company in response to a claim for personal injury following an employee suffering multiple amputations of their fingers. Jennie thoroughly investigated liability and was able to obtain a significant reduction for contributory negligence together with a reduction in the claim for future losses resulting in a saving of over £600,000 from the pleaded claim.
