A team dedicated to helping those who have suffered

Industrial Disease

If you have suffered from an occupational or industrial disease we can help you get the compensation you are entitled to. We are one of the leading firms in the region including Kent & the Medway Towns specialising in industrial disease on a ‘no win-no fee’ basis. This includes fatal asbestos industrial disease, like mesothelioma, hand arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), RSI and occupational asthma.

Even where activities causing the industrial/occupational disease, such as mesothelioma, happened many years ago, compensation can frequently be obtained on a ‘no win-no fee’ basis.

Where the guilty party is no longer in operation, we can often seek compensation for industrial diseases from their insurer. Very often a building’s occupier could also be responsible for the industrial disease.

We help clients throughout Kent and the South East, many of which are located in the Medway area, to get compensation for all types of industrial disease. We are the only firm in Kent, Sussex or Surrey with an APIL Accredited Occupational disease Specialist and APIL Accredited Asbestos Disease Specialist solicitor. Cases we help with can include:

The most common industrial disease claims we deal with are asbestos diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer , asbestosis and pleural thickening.

We are proud supporters of Mesothelioma UK and MacMillan.
