Elizabeth Smith specialises in personal injury and clinical negligence, with particular experience in the field of employers' liability injuries.
Elizabeth is a solicitor advising on all types of work-related injury, however she has particular expertise in work related upper limb disorders, manual handling claims, and stress at work cases.
She acts for trade union members and professional associations, with extensive expertise supporting employees of the NHS, radiographers, nurses, health visitors, and actors, dancers and stunt performers in films.
However she has also recently acted on behalf of a Commodities Broker, a Veterinary Specialist, a Paediatrician, a Restaurant owner and a Post Office worker, all of whom have suffered stress injury caused by their employer.
Elizabeth undertakes much of her own advocacy work in the Lower Courts, and works closely with a team of experienced barristers who understand the nature of her work when representing clients through the litigation process.
Any injury in the workplace causes emotional stress as well as physical disability. Elizabeth supports her clients by recognising this and always making herself available. She looks to avoid full blown litigation by finding creative ways to resolve a situation and reaching settlement.
