Louise Larkin Senior Associate, Head of Industrial Disease Liverpool

Experience Profile

Louise is personal injury lawyer, specialising as Head of Industrial Disease in Slater and Gordon Lawyers' Liverpool office.

An expert with more than 20 years’ experience, she handles a range of industrial disease claims, particularly relating to asbestos.

She has pursued compensation for victims of asbestos exposure suffering from mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening and has represented claimants from all fields of employment.

In one particular case, Louise successfully represented a claimant suffering from mesothelioma who was a full time carer for his wife, who had long term dementia.

A substantial cathartic dependency claim was made in respect of her future care and the case, against Liverpool City Council, settled for almost £700,000.

Louise has also successfully represented a claimant and subsequently his wife following his death due to mesothelioma.
They were both profoundly deaf and could only communicate by sign language.

Louise, who is proficient in British Sign Language, was able to act as an interpreter while acting on their behalf with regard to the compensation claim.
