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 25 years’ experience, she handles a range of industrial disease claims, particularly relating to asbestos.

Louise is noted for her compassionate and professional manner and is sensitive to her clients' needs.

She has successfully 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.

She has represented and successfully claimed for three profoundly deaf clients for asbestos related disease in Merseyside. Louise, who is proficient in British Sign Language, was able to act as an interpreter on their behalf.

Furthermore, Louise undertakes pro bono work, offering a second opinion to cases initially turned down by other solicitors and strives to achieve the best possible outcome for her clients.
