Lisa is an expert in asbestos-related disease claims and is wholly dedicated to securing justice for victims. With 20 years’ experience as an industrial disease lawyer, Lisa has dedicated the past nine years to representing clients in asbestos compensation claims from Thompsons Solicitors’ Liverpool office.
Lisa always approaches her clients and their families with care and compassion. With an impressive background in handling claims for industrial and occupational diseases, such as vibration white finger (VWF), work-related deafness and work-related stress, Lisa uses her experience to get the best deal for clients.
In addition, Lisa uses her vast knowledge of the illnesses and life expectancy associated with asbestos exposure, such as pleural thickening, asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancers, to secure the best outcome for her clients. Lisa works quickly and efficiently and handles all cases with the utmost care and sensitivity.
Lisa endeavours to secure the maximum amount of compensation for her clients in the shortest possible time. In such a complex area of the law, Lisa is well-equipped to analyse the evidence relating to exposure levels and to consider detailed engineering and medical evidence with which to pursue claims to trial.
In addition to helping individuals who have developed an asbestos-related illness, Lisa represents their distressed and, sometimes grieving, families through the legal ordeal.
Lisa’s job satisfaction comes from knowing she has done her best for her clients who are stricken by this most terrible disease. She is proud to work for Thompsons as it only ever acts for those who have been injured, never for insurance companies or employers.
On her days off, Lisa enjoys reading, socialising and Zumba.
Lisa's case experience
Mesothelioma settlement: Mr Talbot worked for ICI between 1945 and 1981. He developed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos without protection. Lisa secured a six-figure settlement.
(Note to ed: Talbot v ICI link to website please?)
Asbestosis compensation claim: Lisa’s client worked as a scaffolder at the Windscale power station in Sellafield in the 1960s. He was present when the laggers sprayed asbestos paste onto the walls of the heat exchangers in the AGR reactor plant and, as a result, subsequently developed asbestosis. Lisa won his case and secured a sum of £24,500.

The widow of a former Thompsons personal injury client, said:
“I just want to say thank you for all the work you have put in over the years on … case. …. You were very good with him when you visited … Hospital. I know it was hard for him with the speech and understanding problems that he had, and also he was finding it very hard to come to terms with being told that his condition was terminal. The outcome was more than I could have expected so once again, thank you”.
