"Can you thank Miss Murray for the way in which she dealt with this matter today. She brought compassion and sensitivity into her professional dealings with the client for which I am most grateful."
Elizabeth is routinely instructed to act for both Claimants and Defendants in personal injury fast track and multi track claims valued up to £500,000, and has experience of cases pleaded up to £1 million.
She accepts instructions in all areas of civil litigation including road traffic accidents (credit hire, low velocity impacts and MIB claims), occupiers' liability, employers' liability, product liability and highway claims. Elizabeth also has a busy industrial disease practice, with particular emphasis on NIHL claims, and accordingly is very familiar with limitation arguments.
She has particular enthusiasm for a unique field of litigation involving the Animals Act 1971, and specifically imports her personal knowledge and experience of all things equine into claims involving horses and riders.
Instructions can be accepted on a conditional fee agreement basis.
Elizabeth is willing to act at all stages of litigation from pre-action stage through to CCMC, the final hearing and appeals. She has a very heavy paper practice including advising on liability and quantum, and drafting schedules of loss.
Elizabeth has an approachable and down to earth manner with both her professional and lay clients. She appreciates that litigation can be extremely stressful and will endeavour to put clients at ease. Elizabeth invites instruction at an early stage and appreciates involvement as a case progresses, favouring the teamwork approach to cases which developed prior to her career at the Bar when working for HM Revenue and Customs as an instructing paralegal. At that time Elizabeth had responsibility for a caseload valued in excess of £100 million and accordingly remembers the pressures associated with the same and the management of client expectations.
When she is not in court, drafting pleadings, or conducting conferences, Elizabeth can be found at the stables with her Dutch Warmblood horse, Carnsdale Captain Nemo.
