  •  

  • Won damages for an independent contractor against a property company. Our client was re-glazing a house. He broke several bones and was off work for over two months. the property company argued that as he was self-employed, they were not liable. we successfully argued that whilst there was no contract of employment in place, the site was the responsibility of the defendant who had a duty of care to all people working on the site.
