Jatinder Paul

Associate Solicitor

Biography

I am an Associate Solicitor in the market-leading International Personal Injury team in Birmingham. I have particular experience in group claims and cross border disputes. I manage a team which primarily deals with group actions against UK based tour operators, or single party actions against defendants in foreign countries (often working with foreign lawyers).

I also handle claims which involve illness outbreaks on cruise vessels and outbreaks of illnesses such as E-Coli and Salmonella.

My recent cases include the fatal outbreak of Legionnaires Disease in Stoke-on-Trent in 2012 and numerous illness outbreaks in hotels across the world and on cruise vessels.

I frequently appear in the press commenting on this field and I have been quoted in the Daily Mail, The Sun, The Times and The Daily Mirror. I have also been interviewed by the BBC, ITV and Sky News.

In 2016 I was named as the Young Professional of the Year at the Signature Awards in Birmingham. The Signature Awards celebrates the work of Asian professionals working in a range of industries including banking, accountancy and law.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I wanted to do something that was both challenging and rewarding, and I work in an area of the law that incorporates both of these aspects. It’s great that my work has the potential to change people’s lives on a daily basis.

Ultimately, every effort must be made to ensure lessons are learned from the problems so that they are never repeated in the future. “Many holidaymakers will be seeking reassurances and these should be provided as quickly as possible.”

    Public Health Lawyers Instructed To Investigate Following Care Home Resident's Suspected Legionnaires' Death

    Andy’s family understandably remain angry at his death which they feel was avoidable. “While the family appreciate that a thorough investigation has to take place, it is upsetting for them that more than four months after Andy’s death, they are still waiting for answers. “They have many unanswered questions relating to Andy’s death and, following our instruction, we are determined to help them get the answers they deserve. “Legionnaires’ disease is a serious illness which, as this case demonstrates, can have a huge impact on those who contract it.

    Feathers Hotel Legionnaires’ Outbreak: Specialist Public Health Lawyers Instructed By Victim’s Family

    “It is only weeks since Elaine passed away and her family remain understandably devastated and angry at their avoidable loss. “Our clients have many questions relating to her death and, following our instruction, we are determined to help them get the answers they deserve. It is regrettable, despite almost two months passing by, that the owners of the Feathers Hotel have still not sent a personal apology to Elaine’s husband or her children, and I would ask that they immediately take the steps to do so. “Legionnaires’ disease is an incredibly serious illness which, as this case demonstrates, can have a huge impact on those who contract it. I would encourage anyone who has been affected by illness after staying at the Feathers Hotel to see their GP at the earliest available opportunity. I would also like to speak with them as they may be able to help with our investigations. “Following our involvement in the aftermath of the outbreak in Stoke-on-Trent five years ago, it was our sincere hope that lessons would be learnt from that outbreak and these recent problems suggest there remains much to learn in terms of keeping the public safe from illnesses of this kind.”
