Sarah James Senior Associate, Industrial Disease

Experience Profile

Sarah is a senior associate at Slater and Gordon in Cardiff. She has vast experience of dealing with industrial disease claims and in particular, asbestos related disease claims.

She specialises in mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening claims and tirelessly goes above and beyond in seeking financial redress for those who have suffered as a result of this indiscriminate natural fibre.

Historically asbestos disease has been associated with those working in industries such as ship building and construction. The 21st century, however, has unfortunately brought with it a generation of new victims; often at the prime of their lives. 

Whilst financial redress is important, empathy and sensitivity in dealing with clients and their loved ones is crucial. Sarah has committed herself to assist all of those affected and their families.

Where possible, Sarah endeavours to ensure funding for specialist treatments not available on the NHS.
