Unlike straightforward accidents at work, industrial disease claims arise from exposure to something harmful at work over a period of time, which can often be prolonged.
These cases can be extremely complicated. They often relate to exposure many years earlier (especially in asbestos and deafness claims) and there can often be problems with:
Tracing their insurers
Proving the harmful exposure took place
Proving a link between the exposure and the medical condition
There are many firms working in this area of law but few can match our knowledge and experience. Knowing how to deal with the sharp practice of insurers only comes from dealing with such matters for years – all too many claims fail as the claim-handler will come unstuck when difficulties arise. We don’t fall for the tricks of insurers and if we believe you have a genuine claim, we will fight tooth and nail to obtain the compensation that you deserve.
If you’re in the middle of a claim but unhappy with your present solicitor, give us a call or arrange to come in and see us. We’ll gladly give you our thoughts on your individual situation.
