K Green v Conoco Phillips v Hayes Recruitment
A workplace claim by a young woman who alleged she had suffered Thoracic Outlet Syndrome as a result of a manual handling accident at work. Her claim was initially pleaded on the basis that her ability to work had been permanently compromised. Michael represented the defendant employer where the choice of experts was key to the claim. Michael drafted the agendas for the joint statements which were ultimately devastating for the claimant. As a result of their impact the claimant eventually capitulated and agreed to withdraw her claim shortly before trial and pay the defendants’ costs up to the value of her ATE insurance.
