The substantial personal injury department at Weightmans attracts praise for its 'strong understanding of the commercial objectives of the insurer clients' and regularly defends large loss, commercial insurance, motor, fraud, local government, casualty and costs claims. The practice, headed up by Blaise Smith, is described as 'very good, particularly in respect of employer's liability claims'. Smith has significant experience handling high profile, high value and complex claims and acts exclusively for insurers, with a focus on catastrophic claims. Other key names to note include Jim Byard, the 'commercially astute' Iain Davison and Lindsay Staddon for occupational disease claims, insurance fraud matters and high value, large loss cases, respectively. Clients include Zurich, AIG, Leeds City Council and Durham County Council.
