Lisa specialises solely in fighting for trade union members who are victims of asbestos-related disease. A highly experienced industrial disease lawyer of 20 years, Lisa took up the asbestos brief nine years ago, working out of Thompsons Solicitors’ Liverpool office.
She has an impressive background in handling industrial disease claims for asbestos-related diseases, vibration white finger (VWF), work-related deafness and work-related stress. Lisa approaches her trade union clients and their families with care and compassion. Having built a comprehensive knowledge of the health risks of asbestos exposure, Lisa deals with a full case load of multi-track claims covering all the different asbestos-related diseases of mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening.
Lisa’s expertise in this complex of area of law involves her in analysing evidence of exposure levels, considering detailed medical and engineering evidence and pursuing cases to trial. She also supervises team members in progressing cases further.
Many of the trade union members she helps are terminally ill, so Lisa aims to secure the maximum amount of compensation in the shortest possible time, while remaining supportive, caring and compassionate towards her clients. Lisa handles her cases quickly, efficiently and sensitively.
Lisa also represents the families of people who have sadly died from asbestos-related disease and uses her natural empathy, skills and legal expertise to help grieving and often distressed families through their ordeal.
Lisa enjoys specialising solely in asbestos-related cases that allow her to gain full knowledge and understanding of relevant statute and common law principles. She is also proud to work for Thompsons because of its close connection to the trade union movement. Lisa has forged close relationships with union branches in the North West as well as with victim support groups.
On her days off, Lisa enjoys Zumba, reading and socialising.
