Provision of Expert Witness services in support of a construction related negligence claim

About The Project

The project involved the analysis of information and data relating to the discovery of asbestos containing materials on a site previously thought to have been cleared by a specialist contractor prior to our client purchasing the land.

Following our analysis we were required to produce a report which clearly set out the Health and Safety related obligations of the specialist contractor and his failure to comply with his legal responsibilities under both CDM and the Control of Asbestos Regulations.

The project was completed over a period of six months and culminated in a mediation hearing at which our client reached a financial settlement with the contractor.

Project Challenges

• Collation and analysis of fragmented and incomplete information provided by the defendants

• Advising our client during the mediation process when faced with a challenging and confrontational legal team acting on behalf of the defendants
