Pauline Chandler Principal Lawyer, Industrial Disease

Experience Profile

Pauline is a Personal Injury Lawyer at Slater and Gordon in Manchester.

She has specialised in industrial accident and disease claims for more than 40 years.

During her career she has helped thousands of clients recover compensation for mesothelioma, asbestos and other industrial diseases.

These have included bladder cancer from chemicals, nasal cancer from wood dust and other skin and lung diseases caused by chemicals and irritant dusts at work.

Pauline has pursued some high profile and important disease cases that have had a significant impact on disease law and are frequently relied on and referred to as precedents in other disease claim judgements.

In addition she has successfully pursued numerous nasal cancer and asbestos cases that other solicitors abandoned because they could not find the relevant employers’ liability insurers.
