Staying safe at work

Employers in every industry have a standard duty of care which ensures their employees are provided a certain level of health and safety at work, and Health and Safety Executives in the workplace are continually monitoring workers well-being.

While the HSA are there to make sure you are protected in your work environment, our role as a solicitor is to make you are aware of any problems there might be and your options for dealing with them.

As Industrial Disease cases arise from unknowing exposure to harmful substances or unsafe working conditions, we conduct a thorough investigation of your work history and ascertain whether your former employer is still in business and if their insurers are in place to compensate you.

Unlike a standard Personal Injury case, with an Industrial Disease claim it is not sufficient to just show evidence of injuries or suffering caused by employer negligence or a breach of health and safety law. You must also show that it was a consequence of the work that you were employed for. Which is why it’s important you seek specialist advice from our Industrial Disease Solicitors.

If you have been unfortunate to have experienced industrial diseases in a workplace, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Our specialist Industrial Disease Solicitors have a number of years of experience in successfully dealing with Industrial Disease claims by adopting a no-win, no-fee agreement (known as a conditional fee agreement) and obtaining maximum compensation for victims who have suffered.

We are one of the most experienced departments in the North West of England and are experts in this field.
