Deka Briefing: Workplace Liabilities

Articles, Briefings, News | Tue 6th Dec, 2022

Deka Chambers is a pre-eminent common law Set.  We are proud of the range of market leading expertise we offer across our different practice areas. At the heart of our ethos is celebrating those things that connect us as well as championing our differences. This briefing is a reflection of that, showcasing the range and quality of our expertise with articles contributed by many of our practice teams.  

We have chosen to focus on Workplace Liabilities.  In this area alone we offer expert advice and representation on matters from HSE prosecutions and jury inquests, to civil claims for damages arising from workplace accidents both in the UK and abroad, to support from our commercial team on technical issues such as dealing with insolvent or dissolved companies and advice for employers whose business interests are potentially impacted by the recommendations of the Manchester Arena and IICSA Inquiries.

There are many areas where we offer complementary expertise, for example: the nexus between our family team’s children work and our injury team’s expertise in social services claims; the related work of our police, crime and inquests & inquiries teams; the union of our cross border and clinical teams in overseas surgery cases; or the benefit our professional negligence team enjoys from having in house commercial, criminal, family, property and injury practitioners.  

In this Briefing you will find articles on:

  • Criminal Prosecutions for Health & Safety Offending
  • Deaths in the Workplace: The Role of the Jury in an Inquest
  • Employer’s Liability and the Effect of the EFFRA
  • Employer’s Liability for Employees’ Intentional Torts
  • Occupational Stress
  • Employers’ Liability in a Cross Border Context
  • Personal Injury Claims against Insolvent or Dissolved Companies
  • Injuries Arising from Managing Vulnerable or Challenging Patients
