Our specialist industrial disease department has many years' experience in handling substantial civil actions.
Industrial injuries attributable to conditions of employment include asbestosis, mesothelioma, other respiratory diseases, vibration white finger and skin diseases. The Health and Safety Executive estimate that approximately three thousand workers die each year as a result of exposure to asbestos products.
Very often, industrial injury results from exposure to a substance or an unsafe working practise over a period of many years. An industrial injury claim can often involve the detailed investigation of an individual's working history.
Many industrial disease claimants are unaware that their health problems relate to their occupation. By way of example, those who have worked with vibrating tools may suffer numbness, pins and needles and reduced dexterity of the fingers and hands, without understanding the connection with their occupation.
We can provide immediate legal representation and rehabilitation support anywhere in the UK. Slater and Gordon Lawyers is one of the UK's largest and well known law firms with offices in Newcastle, London, Manchester, Ashton-Under Lyne, Liverpool, Chester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Cambridge, Milton Keynes, Preston, Wakefield and Wrexham.
