This top law firm is seeking a defendant personal injury solicitor to join their Birmingham office. The firm have been recognised as a leading legal employer and ranked in L500 and Chambers and are expanding their insurance department.

Working in a busy department, the team provide a full service in defending public and employers' liability claims, particularly workplace, public sector and claims against the emergency services. You will work within their dedicated utilities team and day to day responsibilities will include:

  • Handling a varied caseload for a large national utility company
  • Assisting partners and other fee earners on larger and more complex cases
  • Handling and assisting on both litigated and pre-lit injury claims, property damage claims, contribution claims and recoveries
  • Demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of the Water Industry Act and the New Roads and Streetworks Act and apply those to claims as part of the work
  • Assisting with other types of commercial or injury litigation work as required

You will have ideally have previous experience of dealing with claims in negligence and breach of statutory duty either for or against a utility company/statutory undertaker, but this is not essential. Previous experience of flood damage and business interruption claims would also be an advantage, although training will be provided.

You will be able to demonstrate excellent organisational and time management skills, attention to detail, communication and team working skills.
