As an employee, the last thing you expect is to develop a serious illness or health condition simply by going to work every day. Sadly, many victims of industrial disease only discover that they have been exposed to harmful substances or working conditions long after the damage has been done.
The Law states that employers have a duty to protect their staff from any substances or practises which could damage their health, but through our many experiences with cases involving this type of injury, we know that this does not always happen.
If this sounds familiar, your first step should be to seek legal advice from one of our expert personal injury team who will fight to ensure you receive the treatment, justice and compensation you deserve. With renowned technical excellence and dedication to our clients, you can rely on our industrial disease solicitors to protect your interests and secure the best possible outcome for you or your loved one.

Historical, Multi-Defendant Claims
It may be many years after you were exposed to harmful substances or working practices that you begin to experience symptoms. Even though a great deal of time has passed, you may still be entitled to claim and it is important you seek specialist legal advice as soon as you become aware you may be suffering from an industrial disease.
Even if employers have long since ceased trading, or where it might be the case that more than one employer could be at fault, it can be possible to pursue a claim. A skilled industrial disease solicitor will take action to reinstate a company so that action can be brought, either directly, or via an insurer.
From strategic advice to expert representation and legal support, you can count on our industrial disease solicitors to be with you every step of the way. To make a no win-no fee industrial disease claim, get in touch with our solicitors today.
