Here at Farleys Solicitors our Commercial Litigation department are dedicated to helping clients resolve any type of business dispute that may arise. Our expert solicitors have a wealth of experience in all aspects of commercial litigation and have assisted many of our clients in reaching a successful, timely, and cost effective resolution for any business dispute. Below is an example of a recent case in which Farleys were instructed:

Multinational Company v Industrial Disease Claim

Farleys Solicitors LLP were instructed to act on behalf of a large Multinational Company to defend a claim for Noise Induced Hearing Loss being pursued against them by a former employee of a company whom they had taken over.
The company instructed Nick Molyneux an Industrial Disease Expert to act on their behalf in defending the claim being pursued. Minimal information was available from the personnel records of the company that had employed the individual bringing a claim and no insurance company had been identified.

Farleys Solicitors undertook searches via the Employers Liability Tracing Office in an attempt to ascertain the correct insurer but no insurer was identified. Accordingly, Farleys corresponded with the Solicitors instructed on behalf of the individual concerned. Liability was denied and extensive documentation requested to include a breakdown of the Claimant’s previous employers from HMRC and an Audiogram to evidence the Claimant’s alleged hearing deficit caused by his employment in a noisy environment.

Farleys advised the client about full pre-action disclosure of records and took steps to report the potential claim to the Compensation Recovery Unit.

Farleys were ultimately successful in defending the claim and no payment was made by the client in respect of compensation. The claim was withdrawn in its entirety.
