Jordan Bell Solicitor, Industrial Disease

Experience Profile

Jordan is a Solicitor in the Industrial Disease team at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in Manchester.

He specialises in claims relating to asbestos related diseases, both for individuals who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, asbestosis, pleural thickening and lung cancer and families of people who have passed away as a result of an asbestos related disease.

Working from the firm’s Manchester office, Jordan represents clients based throughout the UK and abroad.

Jordan recently successfully concluded a mesothelioma claim against the company formerly known as Cape Asbestos on behalf of a client who had attended school very close to the Cape Asbestos factory in Barking, Essex during the 1940s and 1950s. The client was exposed to the asbestos that escaped from the Cape factory.

Jordan has also obtained compensation in cases where the client had not worked with asbestos but was exposed to asbestos as a result of the work done by others near to where they had worked.

Jordan deals with claims on behalf of people who worked for Turner and Newall companies. He is experienced in submitting applications to the Scheme established to compensate former employees of T&N companies who have contracted asbestos related illnesses.

Jordan also acts on behalf of individuals who have developed noise induced hearing loss as a consequence of working in excessively noisy environments. He has been able to trace insurers to pay compensation in cases which had been turned down by other firms who had failed to find insurers to pay compensation.
