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.
Recently her list of clients has diversified and includes an A-List film actor, a high-rated personal assistant to a multi-millionaire, an undercover reporter, a commodities broker, a veterinary specialist, and a paediatrician all of whom have suffered work-related stress injury. These are demanding, high profile cases.
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.
