Employer and Public Liability
Greenwoods has a prominent EL/PL practice, handling the whole range of employers’ and public liability claims from minor incidents to catastrophic and fatal.
We act for a wide range of insurers and reinsurers from the large to the specialist, as well as a myriad of others within the insurance market. We are also instructed direct by public sector organisations, businesses and multi-nationals.
Our experience spans a wide range of sectors including construction, transport, retail, agriculture, engineering and domestic. In the public liability field, we have a strong track record acting for local authorities and utility companies.
In relation to employers’ liability claims, our approach is underpinned by a thorough knowledge of work-related health and safety regulations in different industries and occupations.
As regards media sensitive cases, we are always aware that these can attract unwelcome press and public attention and we approach such cases with due care and discretion.
