Daryl Langman is a Senior Associate in our Insurance and Health team based in our Perth office.
Daryl specialises in:
- Medical negligence
- Coronial law
- Medico-legal advice
- Professional indemnity
- Public liability
Daryl has extensive experience in medical negligence and health law, defending multifaceted allegations of negligence. His Australian practice builds upon his experience overseas in the regulation of healthcare professionals and governance issues in hospitals and health care facilities. Daryl regularly advises on complex liability, quantum and strategic issues.
He currently acts on behalf of professional indemnity insurers defending professional negligence claims against insureds in a wide range of professions. He has also acted in connection with investigations instigated by regulatory and disciplinary bodies.
'I like to help clients resolve disputes expeditiously by taking the path of least resistance, while still robustly defending their position and protecting their interests.'
'Non-lawyers often mistake Insurance law for being uninteresting and somewhat dull. I have always found the opposite to be true, particularly working in the health care space; what interests me most about this area of law is the human-interest elements at play. '
'To be confronted with a complicated factual-matrix and distil that into coherent, cogent and commercial advice for a client is incredibly rewarding.'
Daryl has undertaken work for insurers, corporate healthcare providers, self-insureds and medical defence organisations, regularly advising in relation to catastrophic claims for damages in negligence for death and bodily injury, litigation, risk management and legislative compliance. He is skilled at employing strategies to reduce the value of a claim and always strives to achieve a strategic settlement at the earliest opportunity.
Daryl also has experience in advising insurers and insureds on statutory insurance claims, which encompasses both workers' compensation and compulsory third party (CTP) insurance.
'Barry.Nilsson is a national law firm with a reputation for excellence in the insurance and health industries. I had seen the Perth office grow rapidly in a small space of time and it was the obvious choice for me.'
Daryl was first admitted as a solicitor in England and Wales (2010), with a background in serious crime and fraud. Daryl then moved into the health care sector before moving to Australia in 2016.
Daryl is a member of the Law Society of WA and AILA.
