Soldiering on... the fight for compensation for military personnel in Q Fever cases

I am pleased to have this article published in Apil's PI Focus for October 2019, on the eve of my addressing the Military Claims Conference on the topic.  

In it I consider the implications of the case for military claims, disease claims generally, and civil claims even more generally, especially in the Employer's Liability context; including as to the inferences as to causation it is open to a court to draw, and which arguably the court should draw, when an employer has failed to assess and act against risk of injury to his/her/its workers and how this impacts on burdens of proof.  

This picks up in a different context the similar arguments I dealt with in my earlier post on the Goldscheider case (see list below).
