Mr. E.J. Krijgsman
Eric-Jan Krijgsman studied at Leiden University (business law). He has been associated with ScheerSanders since 2001 and deals with general civil law cases with an emphasis on the personal injury and employment law practice.
In his personal injury practice he particularly represents victims of traffic accidents and injuries at work. In settling such accidents he aims to lend a sympathetic ear to the victim first, whilst making every effort to establish liability at the same time, if necessary in court. Then he makes an assessment of the injury and damages under the direction of and in close consultation with the victim (and assisted by his regular medical adviser), after which he tries to achieve the best possible claims settlement, whereby the victim’s interests come first. In June 2017 Eric-Jan successfully completed the Grotius specialisation course in Personal Injury and since October 2017 he is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (LSA). He is also a member of the Working Group Doctor and Lawyer (WAA).
In employment disputes, Eric-Jan acts for both employers and employees. He can rely on extensive experience with dismissal procedures, large reorganisations and providing solutions for problems in the workplace (such as underperformance and illness). Eric-Jan is frequently instructed by regional and national organisations. In June 2009 he successfully completed the Post Academic Course in Employment Law (PALA). He is also a member of the (national) Vereniging Arbeidsrecht Advocaten Nederland (VAAN) and the (regional) Vereniging Haagse Arbeidsrecht Advocaten (VHA).
Eric-Jan has a business-like and pragmatic attitude but does not lose sight of the human aspect of a case.

On the basis of this registration, he is required to obtain 10 training points in each registered principal area of law each calendar year in accordance with the standards of the Dutch Bar Association.
